The cork oak tree, QUERCUS SUBER, grows in Portugal and other countries which border the western edge of the Mediterranean basin.
The cork is harvested by removing the bark of the tree, every 9 to 10 year cycles. The cork tree must be approximately 25 years old before the first extraction (virgin cork) and then nine years shall be necessary for following harvests.
Fortunately, the cork tree lives for 180/200 years which allows 15/20 extractions.
Buying and using cork products you are contributing to preserve a natural, renewable resource and important ecological environment in the western Mediterranean countries.
