If I was to some EKG in there at flame out do you think that would bolster an earthy hop aroma that would add to the pine? Also what are some none hop ingredients that may add to the piney-ness? Pine needles maybe?

EKG just won't give you the true earthy character that Willamette or Fuggles will. And the straightest, easiest, and safest way to add DRINKABLE pine character to your beer is to use Chinook or Simcoe hops. To account for the strength of the piney hops, use around twice the earthy hops as you would the piney ones. It'll work nicely.
