Trinidad Teak Wood vs Plantation Teak Wood
Caribbean Teak & Lumber Supply, L.L.C., only harvests Slow Organic Growth Teak Lumber. The fields in which our trees are harvested from are not irrigated nor are they fertilized. This prevents our trees from growing rapidly and having tabbed growth rings, ensuring that its finished product will hold its genuine beauty. The color of the wood is a rich dark golden brown. The teak trees we harvest are a minimum of 35-40 years old. Since the tree is not as mature as a 100 year old Burmese Teak tree the grain tends to be wild to wavy. Knots and light pithing may be present in some pieces. Average widths of Trinidad Teak lumber is 6-8″.
Our Trinidad Teak was originally derived from Burmese seeds and cultivated on the island of Trinidad in the Caribbean over 100 years ago.
