Comments: Has a deeply fissured, corky, gray bark. Does not transplant easily and should be planted in permanent position when quite young. Susceptible to gall insects and the resulting balls that may make this tree less attractive in a landscape development. Its bark has been harvested for use as a cork-like mterial.
