Excerpt: Of all the tropical hardwood species ? and perhaps all tree species ? teak exudes a particular fascination, somewhat like gold among the precious metals. Appreciated for more than 2 000 years as an extraordinarily durable building timber in its native range in Asia, teak is now coveted worldwide. Its extremely good dimensional stability and aesthetic qualities have led to its use, for example, in shipbuilding, fine furniture and door and window frames. Teak, native to India, Myanmar, the Lao People?s Democratic Republic and Thailand, has been introduced to numerous countries in tropical Asia, Africa and the Americas. However, management of the resource has not kept pace with demand, and supplies of teak wood from natural forests have dwindled. Today, harvesting of teak from natural forests is banned or severely restricted in all the countries within teak?s natural range, except Myanmar.
