Cork is the outermost bark of evergreen trees and is composed of thin-walled, wax coated and irregularly shaped cells. These cells constitute the peeling bark of the trees. The wax coating is called suberin and protects the stem from loss of water, insects attack into the stem and infection of the stem by fungal spores and bacteria.
