The North Carolina Pine Needle Producers Association has been promoting the planting of longleaf pine seedlings since the mid ‘80s and with three million acres planted; there is a more than adequate supply of mother nature’s perfect mulch.  The longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) is a very important species native to the Southeastern U.S.  Support of the longleaf pine needle industry insures the perpetuation of longleaf pines and all other species indigenous to their ecosystem.
