Not native to south central Oregon

Not native here or anywhere else I've ever lived. I'm sure some of you all will know what it is.

These cones are a little under 2" in diameter and only about 7" or 8" long. Needles 1". So not sugar pine.

first the tree in the photo is a fir, not a pine.
Pines have their needles in clusters.

if it was a pine then you could try this site

The site eliminates the Grand Fir as the cones are hanging down and larger - so it must be a Pacific Fir - you are a long way from their zone!  I only guessed Sugar Pine because the cones looked that big (I just picked some up the other day) and they are WAY out of your area!

I'm going to guess Norway Spruce.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picea_abies

Certainly out of it's native range, but it's a common ornamental or Christmas tree in many places, including the PNW area.

The needle layout and larger cones seem right.

I should have also taken a picture of the bark. It looked very much like the bark of the Sitka spruce that grows on the coast.

Edit:
So doing a little research, I'm thinking Norway spruce is spot on. And when you feel the needles you notice that it is a "kinder, gentler" spruce than the Sitka.
