    I am in northeast Mississippi looking for a supplier of pine straw bales. I have seen suppliers drop an 18-wheeler trailer off and pick it up after it is emptied. Anybody know a supplier for this area.

    I have a question for you. I am a small company in Georgia and I have to give an estimate for a hotel installing pine straw. Can you please share with me on how you calculate the number of bales? Thanks.

    Generally speaking, I calculate that one bale of pine straw covers about 50 square feet. Determine your square feet to cover, divide by 50 and that gives you the number of bales. I usually then ad 10% to that incase I have som ethin areas that need a little extra straw.
