French bark (Pinus Maritima) is also called decorative bark, because of its beautiful terracottabrown color. French bark is a high quality bark which is much more durable than other types of tree bark (approximately 4 to 6 years). The higher purchase price of French bark will easily be recovered. The choice of French bark means less topping up and maintenance and is a decorative addition to any garden.
