Fresh pine mulch?
We recently had several pines trees cut and chipped, planted Nellie Stevens as replacements, would it be okay to mulch the hollies with the pine mulch or should we wait until it is composted?

Fresh wood chips can pull a considerable amount of nitrogen from the soil, so while you can use it, I'd recommend adding some fertilizer on top of the soil first. That way as the mulch breaks down and uses nitrogen, it won't steal the nutrients from your hollies.
