It's time for spring cleaning -- and that goes for indoors and outdoors.

Many Carolinians look to pine needles to spruce up their yards or commercial property. With so many homes and businesses using pine needles, where does the supply come from?

One location is Pine Needles Express in McBee, South Carolina. They farm pine trees and collect the soon-to-be yard decorations.

"We're the biggest supplier in the Southeast," Pine Needles Express' Ricky Deese said.

Pine needles are delivered in bales, a rectangular block. Pine Needles Express produces, roughly, 2 million bales each year.

They have between 10-12,000 acres of land where they grow these trees. They sell to businesses like Lowe's Home Improvement.

"You're going to get your best pine needles around March and April," Pine Needles Express' Ricky Deese said.
