I have recently had a tree tradegy in my yard. All of my beautiful
Loblolly pines were infested with the dreaded pine bark beetle and were
removed. I now have the largest pile of pine wood chips you can
imagine. I intend to spread them across the bare ground and let them
decompose over time, but would like to use some as a mulch. I know they
will rob the surrounding earth of nitrogen, but what type of plants
will this affect and by how much?
I will now set to planting at least as many trees as were removed. My
back already hurts ;-)
Thanks all! I was literally attacked by a friends mother on the phone
for "killing all my azaleas" by mulching. They all still look great and
should be flowering soon ( April ).
