Why would you want pine needles?

lol! With all the dang pine trees people plant around here I'd let you come here and rake up needles from under trees as much as you want! $1.00 a bushel! And also, for the crafts people, I know where theres an abundance of those neat craft pine cones everyone needs to decorate their homes. Sell those for $1.00 a dozen, you pick up.

I guess this is how it works, one mans trash (pine needles are nusance trash to us) is another man's treasure!

Well I know that in some parts of the country "pine straw" they call it is used widely as landscape mulch.

Yea I have heard of pine straw (although I don't understand it why don't they just use mulch) we don't use in in MO or in MA or FL when I was there...weird...anyway good luck finding a pine needle dealer...now if I can just find a SWEET GUM BALL dealer!

You buy what you sell. You don't sell what you buy.

Not sure why customers ask for it but they do all the time. I have a sample of it back at the office. a supplier shipped to me in a small bail like bundle. I am going to give it a shot in the Garden Center this year.

B&B,
Don't let these guys get to you. They just don't understand that we maintain about 60-80% margin on needle jobs here in the Carolinas. I've found that many of my mulch customers are moving to longleaf needles (we don't mess with short leaf). Now is the perfect time to spruce up those dead beds!!
Here's a company out of Jefferson, SC that we buy a ton of needles from. Good luck. Here is their info:
Jerry Melton Pine Needles
1047 Macedonia Angelus Road
Jefferson, SC 29718
843-658-3588
843-337-5012 Cell

Sell what the customer wants!!!
Jeff
