Re: Pine needles


Kitty,
I cut some lower branches off my pine trees many months ago. I laid them underneath the tree to dry out thinking the same as you, they would be great mulch. I just walked out to look at them. I think they would be ok to use now but I would think they would have dried out faster if I had laid them out in the sun and turned them every once in a while.
Just my thinking...

Subject: [CHAT] Pine needles

I have - oops had - a dwarf variety of white pine in my back yard.  It
was a
sort of standard, a round ball on a trunk when I bought it.  I candled it
over the years to keep it compact, but after about 10 yrs it's just too
big.
So this morning I cut it down before the trash men came, but then I
realized
those pine needles are great mulch.  So I set the branches aside to die
off.
Qstn:  how long do you think it will take for the needles to brown and
fall
off so i can use them as mulch?

Kitty
