Police, SWAT in standoff with man at home in Thomasville

Piedmont man enjoys making pine baskets

It’s the state tree of North Carolina, but few long leaf pine trees grow west of the coastal plain.

Despite that, the tree’s long slender needles are prized by landscapers and can be seen around home all across the Piedmont.

Thanks to one of Roy’s Folks, long leaf pine needles can be found decorating the insides of many homes too.
