Cork trees convert CO2 into oxygen through the process of photosynthesis, like other trees. However, they also capture and store, additional CO2 each time bark is harvested and regrown. This can help combat high levels of CO2 in the atmosphere.
Harvested cork trees are estimated to capture 3 to 5 times more CO2 than other trees. This happens due to the extraction of the bark , which simulates growth of a new layer for protection, thus capturing more CO2 with each harvest. It is estimated that from the 2 million hectares of cork forests around the globe, 14 million tons CO2 per year are retained.
Every 9 years when the harvest occurs, another step towards climate preservation is being taken. Any day is a great for think in a sustainable future.
