The global teak study. Analysis, evaluation and future potential of teak resources (IUFRO World Series Vol. 36)

Teak (Tectona grandis L.f.) is one of the most valuable tropical hardwoods of the world. Together with other high-grade hardwoods, teak is sought in the global markets for its beauty, strength and stability, natural resistance and wide array of applications ranging from quality furniture through interior joinery to cultural uses. Given the importance of teak, a group of experts from IUFRO, FAO and TEAKNET conducted a global teak study addressing best practices and lessons learned on the conservation of teak genetic resources and the sustainable management of teak forests in Africa, Asia and Latin America.  

The study was partially funded and commissioned by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO), Japan. The report with policy recommendations has been published by International Union of Forest Research Organisations as IUFRO World Series Publication No. 36 and can be downloaded below.
