Pine straw has long been a mulching staple in the southern U.S. and its catching on in the Midwest due to its attractive appearance, earthly tones, and natural benefits. Unfortunately, price and availability prevent Cincinnatians from decorating landscapes with pine mulch, leaving us to resort to standard mulch.
The price of pine mulch is driven by transportation costs. Since Cincinnati has no direct access to straw, shipments are trucked in from the south. With high fuel prices, pine mulch becomes less affordable for retailers in Cincinnati, ultimately passing the expense onto customers. With no direct straw access, and southern U.S. retailers serving their own customers first to avoid high transportation costs, pine mulch availability in the Midwest becomes an issue. In high season, its not uncommon for Midwest suppliers to run out of pine straw, and when its gone, its gone. Replenishing inventory is costly and time consuming, and guess who waits…you!
