Identify this pine

It came off a pine looking tree. Needles and long. I’m in South East Asia and can’t find the tree from googling it.

    Hi!

    It’s a Casuarinaceae (maybe Casuarina equisetifolia). Looks like an immature pine cone, but the scales are in rows not in fibonacci spirals.

    Casuarina is widely used as a bonsai subject, particularly in South-east Asia and parts of the Caribbean. Indonesian specimens and those cultivated in Taiwan are regarded among the best in the bonsai world. 🙂
