How cork is made

Cork is an impermeable, buoyant material, and fire resistant, it is used in a variety of products, the most common of which is for wine stoppers. Cork oaks are harvested every nine years. It doesn’t harm the tree, and the cork bark regrows

The montado landscape of Portugal produces approximately 50% of cork harvested annually worldwide.

Again, and again… Save Miguel!
