Pine needles are used as decorative mulch, as a ground cover. They’re acidic, we use them in azalea beds. The needles are rather waxy, which makes them relatively long lasting.

Because Pines are very special, like Tamarinds.
Willing to go the extra mile and use self compost.
Tamarinds prefer their own composted leaves.
Let us see what it does to a pine.

Maybe more buds and branches ?
