The Cork Oak’s bark is visually dramatic on this hardy evergreen. It is also the age-old all-natural renewable resource for cork. The thick cork bark is harvested without harming the tree. This species grows very well in the regions of California where the climate is very similar to its native Mediterranean habitat. Our seed stock is sourced from the massive cork oaks located on the campus of UC Davis and the grounds of Napa State Hospital.
