Default Re: cork, & why it's so expensive

No I believe it regenerates just fine, but they watch when and how they harvest it to protect the tree. I think they have to wait till a tree is 20 or so years old before the first harvest and then the second comes 10 or so years after. This continues for the life of the tree, which can be over 150 years I believe.
