[NAFEX] pine needle mulch versus wood

I find that the partly-compost small woodchips/sawdust I get from a stable has a 
surprising ability to stop moderate rains from getting through to the dirt.   I no 
longer put it on my garden/berry beds, because if there are only slight or 
moderate rains the dirt underneath stays dry.  The chips/sawdust seems to have 
the capacity to absorb an awful lot of water.  So now I wait for it to decompose a 
lot further.
