The harvesting and marketing of pinestraw has become extremely lucrative across much of the southeast. Longleaf is regarding as the king of all North American pines in regards to the quality of its pinestraw. Some longleaf plantations are commercially viable as early as seven years post planting. Tragically, most landowners are under the impression that they must remove all native ground cover to harvest pinestraw. This webinar will examine the ecological costs and the economic benefits of raking pinestraw with various techniques. Learn how some landowners and land managers have been able to keep their native groundcover while raking in excess of $100.00 an acre annually.
