How fortunate!

There is no need for the pinecone part, but if you cannot get the root out, then you will want to cut off the section that the seedling is growing out of. The seeds usually fall out of the pinecone, but this one stayed in and sprouted.

It appears to be a Douglas Fir or related species. This article will help you to care for it:
