Long Needle Pinestraw

By far our most popular among both homeowners and high end landscapers.  All bales are clean and consistent in size with needles in lengths of up to 16 inches.  It has more resin in the needles making it our longest lasting and also our brightest in color.  Even though it is our most expensive straw it returns its initial cost difference with the most longevity.

Slash Pinestraw

This pine straw falls from the Elliottii pine tree, which produces 7-10 inch needles and has more resin in the needles than the loblolly.  It is commonly called “Georgia Red” due to its reddish appearance.  The color of this straw is typically reddish brown.  Of the three varieties that we provide the slash pinestraw has medium color, medium needle length, and is our mid-ranged price. Beware of other competitors who are selling slash pinestraw and calling it long needle, there is a noticeable difference to the trained eye, and you will be paying more for a lesser straw as it does not have the same longevity as the long needle pinestraw. This pinestraw is very popular among landscapers, golf courses, nurseries, and garden centers.

Loblolly Pinestraw

The Loblolly pine tree is probably the most common pine tree in the eastern part of North Carolina. The loblolly has the shortest needle of the three varieties that we carry and is considered a short needle straw with a length of 6-8 inches.  It has a softer texture than the other varieties and its color is a brownish-orange and spreads very easily. Many customers remark on how soft the texture of this pinestraw is when compared to the slash. It is usually purchased for its ease of installation and its inexpensive cost.  Loblolly pinestraw lays and tucks very well due to its softer and flexible needles.  It is also our least expensive bale of pine straw.
