Cork is the bark of the cork oak – Quercus suber L – a noble tree with very special characteristics, growing in Mediterranean regions, most particularly, in Portugal, covering an area of approximately 720 thousand hectares of cork forests. A tree can live in average 150 to 200 years, despite its bark being stripped at nine-year cycles it has an enormous capacity for regeneration. Above all, it is a material absolutely natural and recyclable. The cork forest provides an ecosystem that makes the natural habitat for indigenous mammals and birds in risk of extinction – Iberian Lynx and Imperial Eagle.
