Experience in rapid growing teak plantation

Teak Farms (TF) produces and replicates selected quality cloned seedlings and combines them with a unique work process, based on advanced methods from the fields of biotechnology, agriculture and forestry. This allows TF to achieve high-quality harvests in a far shorter time period (6 years) than other timber growers around the world (traditionally 20+ years).

TF's proven capabilities for rapid-growth Teak plantations (MAIs of 20-35 m³/ha and up were recorded) are based on more than 500 ha of Teak plantations that were planted in small plots in Central America by TF’s managers since 2005. These capabilities were validated in the independent analysis that was published in the Case Research Journal, Volume 34, Issue 1, Winter 2014 - by Lisa Majure, Kathryn Savage, Matthew Haertzen, CFA - all from Northern Arizona University and Alex Finkral, Ph. D from the Forestland Group (Harvard Business Review).

 
 

Strength

No significant difference in wood strength between old and young trees*.

Beyond Forestry teak density measured at 0.60 g/m3

Normal range = 0.52 - 0.80 g/m3

Heartwood

Heartwood formation is a function of stem diameter.

Faster tree growth = faster growth of heartwood.
