    Half of the world's cork wine stoppers come from Portugal's cork oak trees. These trees are so important to the country's ecosystem and economy, they're protected under Portuguese law. We went inside the forests of Alentejo to see how the cork bark is carefully harvested every nine years so it doesn't hurt the trees. This footage was filmed in 2019, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I admire the fact that the process doesn't involve killing the trees.

I love how they reuse the trees and don’t chop down the trees

Their cork harvesting looks so cool. It feels like shearing sheep— bark just grows and then harvest after years.

I legit though corks were completely fabricated and manufactured. Knowing they aren't is really interesting.

Cork scraps can also be mixed with a silicon and formed into material for making water proof boots, wallets, flooring, etc. It's really neat.

The natural way the bark is carefully removed and handled, the care for the trees themselves made me so happy.

I went on a guided tour of the Portuguese countryside in early 2020 and the guide gave a one hour talk on the cork oak trees, its uses and how proud the country is of the industry.

Such an interesting material, great in the battle against plastics, durable, sustainable harvests and actually helps against desertification.. I envision a Sahara desert full of cork oak trees 😍
