Falon Land Studio LLC added this to Have Acidic Soil in Your Yard? Learn to Love Gardening AnywayAug 21, 2014

Soil acidity around conifers is due in part to the way ions are exchanged between conifer roots and the surrounding soil. Additionally, there is a debate among gardeners about whether or not pine needles will acidify soil over time if it’s used as a mulch. Pine needles are acidic when they are freshly fallen from a tree, but they lose acidity within weeks. They have not been shown to dramatically alter soil acidity.

The architect oriented the long axis of this building toward a stand of oak trees to take advantage of cooler pools of air created by their shade.

Cain had small pine trees and chest-high grass and weeds removed to clear this greenway between a row of hard pine on the left and live oak on the right.

I like the idea of an alley of trees which line up with front entrance (I don't necessarily like the one in this photo though)
