I know mulching with pine needles has been discussed here before. The advice that these are to be avoided since they make the soil acid has been exposed as a myth. I heard a new reason not to mulch with pine needles. A county extension agent said these should not be used for mulch since they contain resins that are bad for fruit trees. I didn't know how to respond to that. I think that is a myth also. Next time I hear that advice I want to have a comeback. Any thoughts...
