We are wanting to make some baskets using needles of the longleaf pine. Is there an area in th Triangle that has a pine grove with a majority of longleafs we can gather up some needles?


Thanks

Most of our Longleaf Pines grow down in the Southern Pines Area.

We read that.. Fort Bragg, Overhills , Sandhills has the greatest concentration in the state. We are going needle hunting this Sunday in the Overhills / Anderson Creek area. We just have to drive 10 miles...

Yup, the sandhills. Perhaps you can look-up and/or ask someone affiliated w/ the NC Forestry service? Also, NC has a Cooperative Extension service through NCSU where you could ask these questions.

Appreciate the suggestion and the links...We wenr driving around Southern Pines via Hwy 1 and NC 211. We stopped at Weymouth Woods (closed due to Irene) and picked up a few along the road. We are going to see if the Longleaf are that much different from the Loblolly needles for basket making...
