Needle Bark (Pinus Sylvestis)

Average composition

Measurement (average) 10-50 mm

Needle Bark is a cheaper kind of bark and therefore fits into most budgets. The disadvantage is that the life span of Needle Bark (approximately 3-4 years) compared to French bark (approximately 4 to 6 years) is considerably shorter. Needle tree bark is also an asset to any place, with its brown color and natural appearance. When the additional topping up and maintenance is no problem, Needle Bark is a good choice.
