Cork Oak

Cork Oak: A species of oak native to southwest Europe and northwest Africa, with the Latin binomen Quercus Suber. They are widely cultivated for their high content of Suberin, a water resistant substance, thus are used as bottle stoppers. Cork can be harvested from the Cork Oak every 9 to 12 years and harvesting does not damage the tree.
