Yes, cork cambium only produces cork which it does on its outer side (the outer layer of a tree's bark) which is only several cell layers deep. Whereas the vascular cambium produces both secondary xylem(sapwood/heartwood) and secondary phloem(inner bark).

Hope this helps :)

actually cambium produces cork on the outside and pheloderm on in the inside

Thank you for your correction and bringing my attention to something I didn't know! I am only studying an introduction to botany but as it is an interest as well I want to learn beyond the syllabus.

I've been reading through the botany forum and have found your replies really useful.

Thanks!

For my first post I want to throw my two cents in. In this case just some synonyms, cork cambium is also known as phellogen, cork is also known as phellum and as MrMistery mentioned phelloderm is phelloderm.

Oh, and for interests sake all of the above combined with the secondary phloem is commonly known as 'bark'.

to by more catholic that the pope
cork cambium=phellogen=suber-phellodermic cambium(strange name, from the fact the cork is a tissue deeply impregnated with the waxy suberin).
