Can I use the mulch from a pine tree?

I had 2 white pine trees cut down last fall and the stump was ground down too. I would like to use that mulch to cover an incline, where I have hosta and tiger lilies are growing,

    Yes Fran, you can use it but we hesitate to use such chips for mulch for one reason, termites. If you use cypress or cedar wood chips they do not attract termites. It is your choice of course and you already have the pine chips. At least it is away from your home on the incline, so the choice is yours. Hope this helps you decide!
