Note:   Reduce watering frequency or install drip irrigation to keep pine straw looking fresher longer.

Pine Straw

In 2017, as a fund raiser our FNPS chapter is took orders for bales of long leaf pine straw (not the slash pine straw commonly available).  These bales are recently raked from the Winter needle drop, so they will be the freshest available.   Longleaf Pine straw has needles in lengths of up to 16 inches (versus 7 to 9 for slash pine).  It has more resin in the needles making it the longest lasting and also the brightest copper color. Check at one of our meetings to see if this will be done on a regular basis.
