+1 on the twist being an indicator. It looks like a Virginia pine that has needles 2-3 inches long in pairs that are twisted.
Here’s a link that may be useful for the OP
You are correct and it looks like the thousands of Virginia pine that are on my property, I was simply waiting for OP to post where they are. Now that they have done so, it fairly well confirms this.

Awesome, I appreciate your help. The tree has been growing for about a year in a pot and I just slip potted into a large basket intending to thicken the tree. Do you think I may have made an error?

I can't see that you have made an error yet, but there is still plenty of opportunity to do so. ;)
Seriously, it will be a challenge with this tree but it has been done. Look in our archives. If you a serious about wanting to get into bonsai, pick up a couple plants that are easier to work with, such as Chinese Elm, junipers, maybe even a black pine (though not easy but proven). On your collected pine, just keep it healthy and growing for now.
And welcome to our site.

Thinking Virginia Pine as well. Needles and sap would have a slightly lemony smell.

I believe so as well. Though, I my town there are a dozen two needle pines all planted within a small area and they all look like black pine to me? Theyre no taller than 30ft. The buds are bulbous and hairy-like, the fascicles are in two and needles long and firm. Cones also small and stubby. Could they just be Pinus sylvesteris? Added note, the town does have JBP planted in the ground I just can’t distinguish in the slightest as a newbie. It would be great to get some seedlings going in the ground of either. Cheers.
