Pine needles are used as mulch in the Southeastern US. Pine needles are actually a leaf. Pine needles eventually decay and benefit the soil in the same way that decomposing leaves benefit the ground. This results in recycling nutrients and maintaining organic matter in the soil.
Pine needles help control weeds and help retain moisture in the soil. Pine needles don’t typically wash away during rain storms.
Trees are not damaged during the process of harvesting pine needles. The carbon footprint for harvesting pine needles vs. other mulches is very low. The majority of pine needles are harvested by hand using a rake. Pine needles are raked into piles and placed into a wooden box for baling.
These are the long leaf pine needles people like to use as mulch. The needles are typically 9 to 12 inches.
