With current total global production of around 3 million m3 per year, teak occupies a small position in terms of the total volume of world timber production, yet it is recognized as a high-value hardwood timber in global timber markets.Myanmar teak is recognized as the world’s best quality teak timber. Myanmar teak has experienced dramatic increases in price whilst simultaneously teak supplies have decreased significantly over the same period.
Elephants are still being used extensively to extract teak because of their low impact upon the environment. Elephants do far less damage to forests than heavy caterpillars and other logging equipment. Teak is not a tropical rainforest species. It grows sparsely in mixed deciduous forests. In its natural environment there are only 1 to 5 trees per acre in the best growing areas but Burma established plantations in 1856 with the assistance of some very farsighted foresters who saw the need to treasure these renewable sustained yield resources for future generations.
