Is cork flooring sustainable?

Cork flooring is a natural, sustainable product. Cork is harvested from the bark of the tree. Cork oak trees can be harvested for the first time for cork bark after about 25 years. Thereafter, the tree bark is harvested every 9 years, leaving the tree still standing.

This 230 year old Cork Oak tree is Portugal’s most prized tree and the most productive one on record. Ever since 1820, it’s harvested every 9 years for wine cork bottles. Stripping the bark doesn’t damage the tree as it regenerates naturally, sequestering more CO2 in the process.
