Pine trees are all over the Deep South. I think Georgia is probably more noted for its pine trees than any other state, as there are many popular American songs that have the Georgia Pines as the backdrop and that image gets ingrained into peoples heads, even if the person has never set foot in the State of Georgia. Tall Southern pines are as much of an iconic symbol of Georgia as red dirt, Georgia peaches, and Coca-Cola.

I don't know how people make money off of the trees, although I would guess pine trees will increase the value of the house/property by quite alot because the shade cools the property by at least a few degrees which means a cheaper electric bill.

I imagine a person might make a little extra cash by selling the pine cones sprinkled in parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme as Christmas decorations.

Biggest commercial use of pines in GA is for lumber and pulp for paper.

At this time, the price of pine is down, in some cases, landowners are having trouble finding loggers who will come into to harvest their trees. This is due to too much mature pine on/ready for the market.

LOL, I agree

There is an explanation - more than likely poster is a spam bot, CityData filters out links that certainly accompanied this poster/robot. What was he trying to sell? Who knows, who cares.
