Cork Oak Tree

Becky’s Tree Square challenge

Cork tree

Cork oak trees (Quercus suber) are native to the Western Mediterranean region, and are still cultivated there for their bark. These trees are slow-growing giants, eventually maturing to 70 feet (21 m.) or taller and equally wide. Woody and upright, cork oaks in the landscape have small, rounded leaves that are gray underneath. According to cork tree information, the leaves stay on the branches all winter long, then fall in spring as the new leaves appear. Cork oak trees produce small acorns that are edible. They also grow the fascinating corky bark for which they are cultivated commercially.
