Pinus Sylvestis (also called pine bark or conifer bark) is extremely suitable as a decorative ground cover and also as a fall- and play surface. It is a cheaper kind of bark and therefore it fits into most budgets. 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.
