Did you know?
Thuya is a rare, shrubby conifer, indigenous to southern Morocco and especially the town of Essaouira, in the foothills of the Atlas mountains, north west Africa.
Income here is generated either by fishing, or the sale of Thuya.
Trees are typically 70 years old before they are cut.
The main characteristic of the wood is stunning burrs, which come from the root of the tree – similar to that found as walnut burr.
The Thuya tree is one of few that can re-grow after being cut down to the trunk, thus maintaining sustainability and supported by a vigorous re-planting program.
