Pantone has these greens for Spring 2017;
PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery
Bringing forth a refreshing take, Greenery is a tangy yellow-green that speaks to our need to explore, experiment and reinvent. Illustrative of flourishing foliage, the fertile attributes of Greenery signals one to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.
PANTONE 18-0107 Kale
Evocative of the great outdoors and a healthy lifestyle, Kale is another foliage-based green that conjures up our desire to connect to nature, similar to the more vivacious Greenery. And, just as we see in nature, this lush and fertile natural green shade provides the perfect complementary background to the more vibrant tones in the palette.
We have several green walking sticks for sale on the website including Derby canes, fold-able sticks and height adjustable sticks.
From the natural wooden section, ash wood has the greenest bark, sometimes quite a rich green.
Ash trees have been under threat in Britain over the last few years due to the Calara dieback disease known as Hymenoscyphus fraxineus. This fungus causes the death of ash trees. It first came to Britain in 2012 and a lot of work has been done since then to monitor the disease, carry out research and reduce the impact to save as many ash trees as possible. The disease doesn’t look as devastating as the Dutch Elm disease, with older ash trees showing some resistance.
We hope the disease can be beaten as ash wood makes such lovely walking sticks.
