Cork products are made by harvesting the bark of the Cork Oak tree.
Cork is considered to be a sustainable choice because removing the bark does not kill the tree or necessitate cutting the tree down. The bark from a single tree can be stripped from the trunk and lower branches every nine to twelve years, with the average number of harvests being between fifteen to twenty times over the course its lifetime. The alternative for most other wood flooring products require cutting a tree down (for example Oak), that can take up to a hundred years to replace.
Once the bark has been removed it is boiled to make it more malleable and less prone to breakage during the production process. Cork flooring is made from the scraps left over from the production of other products. These by-products are ground up, formed, and baked in large ovens.
