As in, when overplanted, it kills everything
around it. You have to tear out the pines
to plant a decent lawn. On the other hand,
they make a decent wind break precisely
because they are flexible.
Systems interoperate. Data is portable.

Uhhh, more cryptic than usual today, Len :~)
"Pine" as in soft, easily workable wood that is marginally suitable for almost anything,
but not really optimal for most high-quality work? Or "pine" as the tree that quickly
colonizes a disturbed area, but is replaced by the hardwoods once it has stabilized the
local ecology a bit?
