The botanical name of teak Wood is Tectona Grandis and they are native to the tropics. Teak Wood has had long precedence in human life. From way back in the 7th century, it has been the trend to adorn residences with teak wood furniture. It was only available to the rich and wealthy in the past. Today, however, most people can afford teak wood furniture. When the Dutch colonized parts of Asia, they brought teak wood to South East Asia, particularly Indonesia.
These days, teak wood can be found in countries like Thailand, Malaysia, and Myanmar. Indonesia gives great importance to its teak plantations. For every tree that is cut down, they ensure that another tree is planted. The teakwood tree takes about 80 years to mature so that it is ready to be harvested. Hence, teak is an excellent and highly valuable material that is often reclaimed from old structures and recycled to create new furniture.
