Kumar was very friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable and confident with our decision to purchase. He even went to the store himself to pick up different baseboards when we changed our mind at the last minute.

Cork

Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree. Scientifically the Latin name for the cork oak tree is Quercus (oak) suber (cork). This remarkable tree has a bark (suberose parenchyma) which is unique throughout the plant kingdom. The cork bark can be harvested from the tree allowing new bark to grow in its place without killing or damaging the trees. This makes every tree a renewable source of raw material. The cork is harvested (peeled) from each tree time after time. The first harvest of the cork bark occurs approximately 20 years after a sapling is planted. After each harvest the cork tree fully regenerates its precious bark and is harvested over and over again every 9 to 10 years until the tree is approximately 200 years old. At that time the aged tree is removed and two new saplings are planted in its place, ensuring the cork forest continues to flourish and expand. Additionally the cork oak tree also reproduces off-springs naturally by dropping acorns that seed themselves and eventually mature into productive full grown trees. The worlds main cork oak forests are found in Portugal, Spain, southern France, Italy, and North Africa.
