Virginia Pine
« on: September 24, 2021, 07:15:07 PM »
I have a couple of acres of Virginia Pine  that was supposed to be a Christmas tree farm.  A lot of them are in the 10 inch range and 30-40 foot tall.  I am wondering about cutting them and making raised bed garden beds.  I am curious about how long they would last.  I appreciate all your advice.

Not long at all, few years at best. It does make for a nice interior paneling.

Thanks Southside.  That was sort of my thoughts.
