Cork is known to be an environmentally friendly type of flooring. This simply means that the flooring is derived from an innately sustainable resource.

The bark regenerates naturally and can be performed approximately 24 times in the tree’s lifespan. This process does not damage the trees.

Cork flooring is just another addition to this list. As mentioned before, the Cork is the bark of Cork Oak tree. This bark is commercially harvested by removing a layer of the cork from the tree’s trunk. This process is harmless to the tree and permits the oak tree to re-grow a new layer of the bark. The typical lifetime of the cock oak tree is 150 to 250 years and is harvested every nine years after its maturity.
