This is the famous real Cork Oak which produce that soft bark, used widely as vine bottle plugs, picture frames, etc. since ancient times. The leaves are similar to the leaves of the Holm Oak (Q ilex) but slightly less spiny (usually). It is slower grower and less cold tolerant, best to overwinter it with little frost. It makes an excellent bonsai though and looks exotic enough on a sunny patio in the Summer. If you want to harvest a layer of bark you have to wait 10-12 years though. When harvesting the bark, the tree is not harmed but nowadays the peeling is restricted in naturally occurring forests and special plantations are used in the mediterranean region for the bark harvest.
