    So, it seems every place that sells pine needles have different amounts in each bale. I get so many calls from customers asking "how much per bale?"
    So how do you deal with this question? Thanks!!

    I charge 7.00 to 7.25 per a bale for long leaf. Depending on the amount I have someone else spread them for 5.25 a bale.

    So you charge over 12/bale for spreading? Maybe I misunderstood what you meant.

    no 7.00 to 7.25 per a bale. (price includes pine needles and and spreading) the price vary depends on how much I can get the bales for.
    If I am spreading 50+ bales I just pay somebody 5.25 a bale to spread them. I make 2dollars a bale...
    was that clearier?

    Oh, okay. Yes, that makes sense now. I see you're in Charlotte, also. How do you like the snow?
