    Nc guys. Anyone found a good reliable place for pinestraw that will deliver? With post Christmas being really slow I would love to try to keep crews busy with pine straw installation. Hoping I could find some long needle that was at wholesale price so I could pre order and get it delivered. I have a farm equipment shelter I could store it under and hopefully get it installed in 2 weeks or so.

    Pm me if you got any connections.

    What do you consider whole sale prices? I can't ever get below $4 per bale. This is high quality straw though. (fresh and very clean). This is for a tractor trailer full.

    I've never bought direct before but if I could presale a few hundred bales I have a temporary storage solution.

    I don't have long term storage or need to buy a tractor trailer load so I buy at a "landscapers" price at a local garden center as needed. I pay between 4.90-5.25 depending on which garden space get and what they pay for the current load.

    O, you should be able to get it for $4 if you're buying a few hundred. We can usually get ours for $5.25 delivered and spread. Granted I go back behind them and touch spots up but they roll the edges of the beds and tuck the curbing areas. Look on craigslist.
