Cork oak bark is harvested by hand without damaging the tree and grows back to be harvested again every 9 years over the life courseof 200 years of this tree..
Each time the bark grows back, it removes CO2 from the air.
The cork oak actively participates in the fight against global warming.
Cork oaks consume 3 to 5 more carbon dioxide than normal when they regenerate their bark, which contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gases responsible for climate change.
