    i have a bit of pine trees here in indiana..all we do is we blow them into bigger piles..they usually roll up like a blankets from being stuck together..and throw them into a bag and haul them off..anything left over gets hit with the lawn mower durring our regular routine and bagged in that area and usually its all gone..whirly birds are the real issue haha

    as far as stripers you can make your own or by one..google up a few ways..i did my own and it works great..

    how it works is it bends the grass down in the direction your mowing and light bounces off of it in different ways creating the stripe..all it is, is light bouncing in your face (light strips) and light bouncing away (dark stripes)

        lots of different ways
        what i did was i took a piece of pvc (3/4" i think ill check for you)
        capped one end of it with a pvc cap (make sure you glue it up real tight)
        fill it with rock sand or anything like that(i used pea gravel)
        cap the other end of the tube

        (before you put the caps on i should have mentioned to bolt in 2 eye bolts..one on each side)

        then zip tie the ends to the back of the mower..keep it raised off the ground about half an inch so it drags across but dosnt bend it down too much

        make sure the whole thing is about the width of the inside of your wheels..
