Hello! I am interested in research on which mulch is best use for landscaping: pine or cedar? (I do not want to use cypress because of the depletion of the cypress forests, especially in Florida). Thanks!

I guess it depends on the areas you want to mulch - pathways, vegetable gardens, perennial beds, trees/shrubs? What about the Cyprus mulch do you like - the texture, the color, etc?
There are many different kinds of mulch, and as you know some of them are either not sustainable (like cyprus) or even toxic - like ground rubber or cocoa bean husks.
Here is a good summary of mulch choices, and instructions on how do apply them:
I hope this is helpful. Please contact AaE again if you have further questions.
