I am currently planning my food forest for my new property. The area that are that I'm planting is full of old growth and pine and oak. It's not a closed canopy but the entire understory is over grown with trifoliate orange, cherokee rose, yaupon, and chinese privet.

I was thinking about trying to plant blueberries around the pine trees. The thought is that the pine trees provide a more acidic environment in the soil that would benefit the blue berries.

Has anyone done this before that can share their outcome or maybe if it failed what they think went wrong?

I have both blueberry bushes and pine trees on my property. While they aren't planted together, I mulch my blueberries with pine needles. The blueberry bushes do very well with that.
