Default Re: Chook Manure for Bananas?

I pulled up this thread just to see what a "chook" was. I've never heard of any negative affects of pine trees. I know their needles tend to make the soil acidic as they decompose, but that's it. Around here (and especially further south) people use pine needles as a mulch. I've heard that Eucalyptus and Black Walnut have chemicals that reduce competition, but if pines do the same I guess i really need to know. I've got a ton on my property and I plan on some major plantings under them if I can get the brush cleared away.
