The richness of the Montado
“Plant a cork oak forest for your grandchildren”, the wise country folk say. They know that their future and the future of their descendants are dependent not only on the harvesting of cork, but also on maintaining the amazingly rich environmental biodiversity of the cork forests and even the balance of the climate itself. Besides its capacity to produce oxygen, the cork oak has a unique cell structure that enables it to retain carbon dioxide, the principle cause of global warming. Inthis section you will fund information about the cork oak forest, fauna and flora, and also about the several setps from bark to final products.
