Return to nature the best of what nature gives us.


Pine bark is a 100% natural product from the maritime pine (Pinus Pinaster), a tree native to the Mediterranean region.

The maritime pine is one of the most important trees in the wood industry as, during its life cycle, it provides wood, pine cones, resin and of course, pine bark.
Originally considered a waste product, pine bark evolved from a landfill-destined product to a premium product used in agriculture, flower farming and landscaping.
