"Shell is another word for bark"

FALSE
Shell is the name assigned by biologists only for the dry outer bark. It detaches, sometimes alone, off the tree or can be removed easily. Cork is obtained, for example, by collecting the shells from the cork tree every ten years. As the trees grow in width, outer bark layer dries and falls, while the inside is formed, new layers of bark.
