The team lead by Dr David Lindenmayer from ANU have done long ranging
studies over many years about use by birds of pine (of different ages,
habitat size, isolation) compared with native and farmland etc habitats in
several areas. The one I am most familiar with (because I was one of the
volunteers, along with many other COG members) was near Tumut, west of ACT.
So there is a huge amount of data analysing the variables from their studies
with. I'm not going to attempt to respond to Peter's question by retyping
any of what I recall from it here (it would be a waste of time). Best seek
out that information direct. To see some of that work, a fair start is this

Are there any Australian birds that use pine plantations for anything other
than refuge? The few times I've bothered birding in them, birds have been
almost totally absent. I made a morning recording on one, and captured only
distant calls.
