The biggest cork tree [by Picota]

One, two, tree, four, five, six, seven

Seven years it takes to ripe

Cork trees grow their light and buoyant coat

Protects them of the fire scare

and gives reason to visit the mountains

The picture above is of course NOT the biggest cork tree Europe’s and the poem somewhat sucks, but the real location of the magnificent tree is below and it should be worth the visit. It is on the east side of Picota and you will need to cross a private land to reach it. I’ve not been there myself but sought this to be potentially useful to stumble over. Let’s hope the Feldspata quarry will not be build – Quarry endangers biggest cork tree.
