The story of
The Pinus Strobus, or Kiefer as it is popularly called, is a Weymouth pine originally from North America. We import our Pinus Strobus from Germany. Large areas of forest are leased where the Pinus is cut and where also smart forest management is done. Old diseased trees are replaced and a cut area is given 6 years to recover.
The trees that are cut are about 30 years old. That is why the branches are no thicker than pencils. Kiefer is also cut from young cultivated trees, but the branches of these young trees are too thick to use in bouquets.
From forest to bouquet
After the Pinus Strobus has been supplied from the forest, it is then cut to any desired length by the employees in the plant.
Before the bunches of Pinus Strobus are transported to the Netherlands, they remain in water for a night.

The Adomex Kiefer range consists of hand bunches, as well as branches cut to length. The lengths are from 35cm to 90cm.
The longer branches are ideal for lush Christmas bouquets in combination with Amaryllis, for example. The shorter branches are often used in Christmas decorations. For florists the beautiful straight, equal branches are very useful.
