I've looked all over the internet trying to figure out what this tree is but haven't come up with anything. I hope someone can help me. The tree is located in Mississippi and is evergreen.

(I've added pictures. Hopefully they show up.)

I remember seeing these cones in California. You may want to look under western resources, I do not think it is a eastern nor southern native.

Ok, after a lot more random googling, I have finally figured it out! It is Cunninghamia lanceolata also called a China Fir (although it is not a fir). Native to Asia.

So it is! You got my curiosity going since I had seen many in the past. California parks and landscapes are filled with non-natives, and, quite a few are asian. Thanks for providing me the answer as well! (I looked it up and they are what I was remembering.)
 
Seriously Rick? Seriously? You might as well just read this tiny ad:
