FACTS AND CURIOSITIES

It is estimated that there are 736 thousand hectares of cork oak trees and in Portugal corresponds to 23% of the national forest.

About one third cork oak forest is in Portugal.

 

ECOLOGY AND SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is necessary to configure human activity so that society meets the needs of the present and at the same time preserve biodiversity and natural ecosystems.

Cork oak forest makes a remarkable contribution to reducing greenhouse gases, the main source of climate change.

Mediterranean mounts retain up to 5 million tons of CO2  per year.

Did you know that a stripped cork oak fixes on average five times more CO2  during the natural regeneration process than an unstripped cork oak?
