Ted’s Holiday – Day 3

Today we noticed lots of trees with numbers painted on them.  We got out of the car to investigate and discovered they were cork trees!  The bark is taken off every 10 years  without hurting the trees and is used to make placemats, tiles, bags, shoes, fishing floats as well as corks for bottles and loads of other things!  Of course, Ted wanted to climb the tree!  Mrs G has brought back some of the tree bark so the nursery children can have a look.
