Emerging pine cones

Wonder if someone can answer a couple questions regarding this photo:

What type of pine tree? Are these the male cones?
Thanks much!

the photo doesn't show the needles well enough. how many needles per cluster, what length & what part of the country/world are you in?

those are pollen cones, yes. soon everything around will be covered in yellow dust. lee

Thanks much. For Lee or anyone else who may be able to help with my other unanswered question, here are a couple more photos:

And, the location is northern Alabama, just south of the Tennessee line. Again, the question was, what type of pine tree?
Thanks much
