We have just felled and burnt a number of large pine trees on our garden boundary. Can I use the ash on my vegetable garden or will it make rhe soild acid?



Shouldn't think so, the resin will have burnt off anyway - fresh clippings might increase the acidity, the ashes shouldn't.

I can't see any reason not to use on veggie garden.

Do keep an eye on the pH, however. Wood ash is quite alkaline, and may temporarily raise the pH too high.
