Conservation is our top priority. The trees used as a Sherry Tree or a Shooter Tree, are in fact a highly protected tree, the Witgat, Motopi or Boscia Albitrunca, also known as the “tree of life” or the “Shepherds tree”.

Many plant eating animals live off it and some insect species complete their life cycle on the tree. The Shepherds Tree is a very slow growing tree and we estimate that some of the trees we work with, were more than a thousand years old before dying.
