The peeler just peels, but first asks for permission, which means checking if it is a good time for the tree. It hits the trunk, and according to the sound it makes, it means it is hydrated and it can be peeled. First, he makes the crown in the log, he opens up a line, then puts the handle of the ax and starts stripping the cork from the tree.

Then the "burricaire" arrives, the person in charge of taking cork breads and "painting the undressed trunks” to protect it and avoid bad things happening to it, that is why they take this dark color that we see (foto).

It is done every 10-12 years.
