As far as I know they are not commercially available and you need to 'collect your own' from a pine forest. Do you know that larch needles do the same as pine needles? Again, you have to collect your own but they are much more readily found as they fall every year (October time) and make a thick blanket on roads and paths beneath the trees. I don't know where you live but suggest that you look for commercial forests in your area.

Redoak, it helps when you join the site if you fill in the bit for where you live and then you can often get answers more suitable to your area.
