Resin odor is one of the ways to tell the ponderosa and the Jeffrey apart. The two look a lot alike. Needle length is another, but I'd really have to be way more into pines for that to work for me.

Er... those are Jeffrey pines [Pinus jeffreyi] that smell like
vanilla. A close relative of the ponderosa.

We have some ponderosa pine where DH and I do our volunteer Forest
Service work. They really do smell like vanilla! You have to get right
up close though.

Just happened across this story about Ponderosa Pines.  To some I am
sure,
this is what you see everyday, but to me in the midwest... it is
awesome.
