Teak Plantation Lumber is of lesser quality

 

Just as popular today as it was since several hundred years ago because of the structure and durability. The best teak comes from Burma where the trees are grown since millenniums. Because natural wood is rapidly vanishing they started with plantation to raise the trees, but the little problem is that this version is not as good as the Myanmar forest grown.

In recent decades it was declared as “conflict commodity” by the British and US and plantations business started to grow, the fact is this is not as good.

Plantations were started in Indonesia and central and south America

because the soil and climate is very similar, the little problem is the extremely long timeframe to get reasonable sizes.

Today trunks and lumber are sold from this countries but for some reasons their hardwood can’t match Burmese stuff which is mainly used this days in shipbuilding, for flooring woodcarvings and interior decoration, there is one company in Yangon, a JV with a French company which makes contemporary indoor styled furniture with the material which looks real good, but they are extremely expensive.
