Default Re: Chook Manure for Bananas?

I'd be cautious as to putting suckers or any type of young plant anywhere pines were or are growing since (do please correct if I am wrong) some or most types of pine actually leave harmful chemicals in the soil around where their roots were and basically kill most other vegetation around them. My neighbor just lost $2500 in arborvitea this past year due to a similar effect of the trees that were present before they cleared the land to build his house 5 years ago. So he had his soil tested and is working on getting the problem cleared via chemicals.
As for the manure, I don't see any big issues with it. All seems good to me, as a matter of fact, you SHOULD plant suckers with some good compost. There's a sticky on one of the main boards for sucker separation and planting and illustrates the use of compost in new sucker plantings.
