    We have an abundance of decomposing pine chips from local logging available, filled with mycelium and fungus. I am definitely going to make some blueberry beds with them and am thinking of using them to mulch fruit and nut trees, strawberries, asparagus and raspberries. I was also wondering if they would be a good amendment to add to the soil when planting fruit and nut trees? Our soil is naturally slightly alkaline and either predominantly silt or clay depending on where you are on the property. I'd love to hear your thoughts about adding it in with fruit/ nut trees and if you have any other ideas of how to use this unlimited resource they are most welcome! Thank you!

    if it is pretty well decayed already it is great for almost any perennial plant.

    if you have a lot of clay, just pile it on top and let the worms do the rest.
