naturalGRO Marítima Pine Bark
Pine bark is a 100% natural product from the maritime pine (Pinus Pinaster), a tree natrive to the Mediterranean region.
The maritime pine is one of the most important trees in the wood industry as during its life cycle, it proivides 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.
The global concern at the environmental level is based on water savings. In this sense, the use of pine bark in outdoor spaces can contribute substantially to reduce the current level of irrigation. In pursuit of this strategy, we have developed a product with adequate characteristics for coverage that guarantees the permanence of moisture in the soil for a longer period, as it avoids evaporation of water. This bark for soil conditioner is a shell with high level of dedusting, properly sanitised and with 100% of purity.
