No Trees are damaged or cut down during the harvesting The extraction of cork and its related industries are remarkably sustainable. This is because the tree is never cut down or damaged during the extraction process and the bark regenerates itself after each harvesting.
Positive ecological impact For each ton of cork produced, the cork oak forest retains up to 73 tons pf CO2, helping to reduce Global Warming Potential (GWP).
Rural areas economic engine The cork oak forest is essential for the economic development of rural areas in the Mediterranean region, by creating jobs and activities related to the harvesting and treatment of cork. WWF estimates that more than 100 000 people are economically dependent of cork-related business activities.
One of the highest paid agricultural jobs Cork harvesting is an activity that requires experience and high skills, to prevent damaging the tree during the process. Therefore this activity is one of the highest paid agricultural jobs in the world.
Crossing generations More than a job, harvesting is a handcraft work that requires a deep knowledge of the forest and the technique. Thus to be able to perform this activity takes several years of training, a know-how that crosses family generations.
Prevent rural desertification

Cork harvesting is a regular and cyclical process, creating a continuous activity that contributes to settle people in areas at risk of desertification.
