Wicanders Cork Flooring: Renewable, Sustainable 

 

 

Cork is made from the bark of the Cork Oak tree. The tree must be at least twenty five years old to be harvested, and the bark can only be harvested off of a tree every nine years. In time, the bark grows back on the tree, healthier than before. Cork is extremely renewable and self sustaining. This is why cork floors are so environmentally friendly. Cork is mainly found and harvested in Southern Europe, including Portugal.

To make a cork floor, the cork bark is stripped from the tree, ground, and processed into sheets. These sheets are then baked in a kiln. Suberin, a natural ingredient found in cork bark, naturally repels insects and moisture, and also acts as a fire retardant.

 

Cork flooring is as comfortable as it is easy to maintain. Wicanders Cork flooring is cushiony and quiet. With Noise Reduction Technology, and Wear Resistant Technology, Wicanders Cork Flooring is a great choice for your home or business. The Noise Reduction Technology makes Wicanders the perfect flooring choice for Conference Rooms, Libraries, and Movie Theaters.

A cork floor is virtually maintenance free. To care for your floor, vacuum or sweep it once a week. When a little extra care is needed, just damp mop it occasionally. About once a month should do.

 

Cork floors also offer unsurpassed thermal insulation. Cork is cellular in nature, which makes it a great natural insulator. It’s the perfect choice for a room where you may need or want a little extra insulation, like your bedroom or basement floor. If you live in an area subject to dry air, a cork floor is also static resistant. Say goodbye to nasty carpet shocks.

Children and Hunting – In Alaska, Colorado, or the Deep South

One thing I do know about hunting is that every man in my family thoroughly enjoys the excitement it brings, and this didn’t skip my son when he was born 5 years ago. My son, although not born a natural hunter, has been trained to develop the skill of hunting. Every year he waits for deer season, which the Colorado deer hunting season is in the fall. He spends time helping his Grandfather putting out food plots, and tree stands high into the sky. He’s only 5 so real guns won’t work, but don’t let that fool you he’s a pro with a BB gun. Practicing with the decoys is a favorite sport of his, and decoys can be found at any Colorado outfitters website or pro shop. He knows how to use a deer call and even what kind scent a deer likes. One important skill he has developed is tracking a deer, poop tracks and all. His grandpa also likes to go to Colorado elk hunting. I wasn’t really a big fan of turning a child into a hunter, but in the South its part of the culture to at least know how it works. The saying let boys be boys is the only thing I can see appropriate to make me feel like it’s a needed skill for his manhood.

As hunting season approaches my son is ready to get out into the cold, to watch in amazement or so he intends to. Usually a good time to go out with small children, from personal experience, is at dusk. In Alaska it can be really cold and frigid, so if you’re in Alaska bear hunting please be prepared for cold weather. Although, I know his intentions are well, after spending a good hour out in the brisk cold, with a big jacket on, my son usually gives up his fight to not fall asleep. His daddy and grandfather are usually happy to carry him back with his gun in tow. When he returns home, forgetting how long he’s been asleep, he usually carries on about how much fun he had, and how next time he plans on shooting the big buck they spotted on the hidden camera. Hidden cameras are a must for your own land unless you use Colorado hunting guides, which usually already know the terrain where they hunt.

Although, the little guy has been several times and hasn’t encountered a deer or turkey close enough to even make an attempt to shoot, he like all the other men in my family, just enjoy the great outdoors. I’m happy that with hunting comes gun safety, which every young man should learn. But on top of that I’m especially happy that my son will have memories with his grandfather and dad that he will carry with him throughout his life, and for that reason I guess I can’t complain much about his hunting.
