Amur cork tree, Amur velvet

Family - Rutaceae

The bark of young trees is ash-grey with a silvery tint and has shallow cracks, while that of old trees is dark-grey or blackish, with deep cracks in the cork layer and distinctive design.

The young Cork trees could be confused with the young Valley elms that also have cork outgrowths, but their buds are easy to distinguish. The Velvet has small buds, hiding in the bark of the thick sprouts.

Tree height reaches 3-5 m near range limits and 25-28 m with a trunk diameter of 90-120 cm in the south. It is grows quickly and lives about 200 years.

It is a typical representative of the mixed, cedar-broad-leaved and flooded forests.

It thrives in hot and sunny places.

It is a medicinal plant and a source of valuable honey with known anti-tuberculosis properties.
