Season peaking for pine straw

[ North Carolina ] Landscaping with pine needles is a Southern tradition that reaches a busy peak in North Carolina at this time each year. A landowner can expect to recover between $75 and $150 a year per acre of the pine straw… The pine-straw industry also is being boosted by state forestry policy that since 1993 has been trying to restock North Carolina ‘s stately longleaf pine tree, whose slender blades can reach 18 inches in length.
