The Cork Oak Tree is unique among trees in that only the bark is used to make wood products. It is not cut down and then replanted like most forestry efforts. Instead the bark is harvested from the tree every 9 years and it regrows more bark. This leaves the tree and the forest undamaged to protect the soil and native animal and plant biodiversity. The most amazing part of the harvest is that when the bark is trimmed off, the tree can absorb 3 - 5 times more carbon than it could before the harvest! Its not unusual to have a 200 -300 year old tree still producing cork bark.
Globus Cork created a rich and broad color palette ranging from the subtle to the bold colors for cork flooring. Our range of tile patterns and sizes are not found from any other cork manufacturer in the world. The result is nearly endless design choices for our customers to express their creativity.
Cork is a harvested product and an environmentally sound choice for flooring. Cork Oak trees can live for a few hundred years so cork forests rate as a great carbon storage. Protecting and increasing natural carbon stores is a major component of a recognized strategy to combat climate change. In these days of a climate emergency, tens of thousands of scientists have stated that protecting and increasing our forests on a large scale can help reduce global warming. Purchasing cork products helps economically support cork forests and small growers.
