Direct Print Cork Floating is a great example of the balance of nature while adding beauty to home or any commercial environment. Cork is the outer bark of the evergreen cork oak (Quercus suber). Cork harvesting is one of the best examples of a sustainable agro-forestry system, where people use the natural resources around them without disturbing or destroying nature. Cork harvesting has been a way of life in the Mediterranean for at least a thousand years. Cork is harvested by stripping the bark every nine years until the cork oak tree dies a nature death 150+ years later.
