The first extraction of cork occurs, usually, when the tree reaches between 25 and 30 years, and the extraction occurs in the months of June to August. This cork, sometimes of considerable thickness, is called virgin and is distinguished substantially from the cork of reproduction extracted in the following periods: it is designated by secondary in the second circulation and by amadia in the subsequent runs or extractions. The cork amadia is the one of better quality, being therefore the most valued, and the only one that can be used for the manufacture of stoppers. From this stage, cork is extracted every nine years.
