The gold of the trees
The resin of trees was discovered early on as a raw material for sealing ship hulls, as a wound healing agent or as an ingredient for varnishes, glues and paper.
Spain alone produced up to 55,000 tons in the 1960s, until synthetic resins and competition from overseas brought resin production to a halt. Today, a new resin tradition is emerging that focuses on sustainability. The resin pines are tapped gently and cared for carefully to preserve them for a long time. The resin is used to produce precious turpentine or the amber-colored rosin, which is used as a base for plastics made from renewable raw materials and can replace petroleum-based synthetic resins.
