TEAK: New Trends in Silviculture, Commercialization and Wood utilization

This book is by Dr. Luis Ugalde Arias. Topics covered in the book include the status and current trends of natural and planted teak forests, the selection of planting sites, propagation and nursery techniques, silviculture and plantation management, harvesting, wood characteristics and processing, financial issues and environmental impacts.Superior planting stock in the form of genetic clones developed for specific environmental conditions; along with modern management techniques have transformed it into a champion producer of high quality wood with a very bright future. Unfortunately, too many plantations still do not take advantage of these greatly improved opportunities.

This book seeks to remedy this situation.  As a compilation of the world literature on teak, supplemented with the author’s own experience throughout the tropics, it offers a readable, practical reference for anyone dealing with this species.
