    Hi I'm new to the forum

    I have 12/ac of slash pine that have been fertilized and maintained. These trees produce a beautiful straw that has a nice color and a great shine. I have someone that can bail the straw and I can deliver. My question is how much would I expect to get per bail delivered? I would have 1,000-2,000 bails available. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Located in Middle GA

    Do you have any long leaf? I haven't used slash or loblolly in years. What part of Middle GA are you in?
