The burl of this heather tree (erica) is naturally flame resistant and also very beautiful, thus they were used to make tobacco pipes. A sign of this kind of tobacco pipe production in the area is the ariturismo la Pipetta, on the road between Monterosso and Levanto. It is named 'the pipe' because the heather burs from the area were brought there to be worked into tobacco pipes.
