This batch of spruce resin is harvested from various spruce trees from the great Alberta wild! I carefully hand select and harvest excess sap that is forming on the tree, always leaving enough behind to cover the wound that the tree was trying to mend, thus promoting more sap production.
-Trees are not damaged to collect sap, some small pieces of wood may be present
- I carefully sort through, remove wood pieces the best that I can and separate into batches.
- Trees are chosen from locations that are remote, away from pesticides, chemicals, human traffic and development. My sap comes straight from the woods!!
wood to sap ratio is below 10% wood and 80% sap and higher.
Tree resin is produced by the tree to heal its own wounds and protect itself from further damage.
