Cork is an adaptation by the cork oak to protect it from forest fires, since it can be removed without killing the tree and regenerates quite easily. This feature has been exploited for thousands of years; this waterproof, light, flexible and adaptable material has been used for stoppers, hives, containers, furniture or gutters. It is removed every 10 years, during the months of July and August, with the help of axes and wooden levers. The neighboring hillsides, privatized at the beginning of the 20th century is a source of a current conflict, given that there are trees belonging to one neighbor are often found on another’s property and the laws of property by land or flight are not respected as before.
