Cork is strong, durable, provides thermal and acoustic insulation, and is resistant to fire, water and rot. The Cork Oak replaces its bark every 9 years, which means that it can be harvested without damaging the tree. The tree itself can live for up to 250 years! Did you know Cork Oak forests support one of the highest levels of biodiversity among forest habitats?
