Xylella bacterium

In 2013 a bacterium called Xylella fastidiosa arrived in the Apulian province of Salento.
Since then, it has caused the desiccation of millions of trees.

Of all Apulia’s Olive Trees

The pandemic has generated hundreds of millions of pounds of wood which today is mostly used as firewood or to power biomass power plants.

our goal: regenerate salento

The inspiration for Tàccaru comes from Salento and its unique landscape.

Our mission: for every item we sell, we will plant a tree in the territory hit by the epidemic.
