The Cork Tree – An Amazing Tree in the Plant Kingdom

Did you know that all cork is bark?  Did you know that the cork bark is from the cork tree?  Most cork is grown and supplied from Portugal.  Portugal is our supplier of cork fabric and cork material.  Watch the cork trees being harvested in Portugal – click here.  Cork bark is eco-friendly, sustainable, renewable, lightweight, and water proof.

The Eco-Friendly Cork Tree

The cork tree is one of the most highly renewable and eco-friendly resources on the planet. In fact, harvesting the cork tree helps fight global warming.  How you ask?  All trees are eco-friendly because of “respiration.”  Tree respiration is the process of a tree taking in carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. The amount of carbon dioxide being held by the tree is called carbon sequestration.  The trees sequester carbon dioxide and stores it in their trunks, branches, leaves, roots, and bark.  The cork tree is an environmental filter.

The Bark of the Cork Oak Tree

Yes, the cork tree is in the family of oak trees.  There are over 600 species of the the genus Quercus oak.  The dead outer layer of bark of the cork oak tree or Quercus (oak) suber (cork) is amazing and remarkable. It is amazing and remarkable because the bark is unique throughout the plant kingdom.  The cork tree is not killed by the harvest.  The harvest does not damage the tree. The harvesting of the bark from the tree allows new bark to grow in its place. This new growth increases tree respiration process.  Each tree is a renewable source of raw material. In fact each piece of cork bark is unique.
