Cork is the inner layer of bark on a type of oak tree, commonly known as the cork oak, which grows in southwestern Europe and northwestern Africa. The bark can be harvested from a mature cork oak tree every 9 years, after which the bark grows back. The trees can live for 300 years.

Cork is made from the bark of a tree, Quercus suber, or the cork oak. These trees can grow pretty big, and they have really thick, rugged bark.
