Romania and Ukraine
Thatchreed from Romania and Ukraine grows mainly in the Danube Delta. Most of the area is in Romania, and a small part is in Ukraine. Because the Danube Delta empties into the Black Sea, it is vital to ensure the thatchreed is not cut in salt water. Thanks to our long-standing contacts, we now know which areas are suitable for harvesting for roofing. Characteristics of Romanian and Ukrainian thatchreed are the somewhat dark colour with an occasional faint red glow.
