As a tree grows, the number of cork cells decreases. In roots the spongy and sclerified phellem of the periderm are each comprised of one layer of cells. Old phellogen layers are eventually cut off to form the outer bark scales or plates. Each scale is comprised of periderm and secondary phloem cut off by phellogen. Scales on the stem surface are typically small and are sloughed off. In roots they are much larger and remain intact. In the periderm there are isolated regions distinguished from the phellem by the presence of intercellular spaces, called lenticels.
