Teak Wood

Wood Species:Teak (Tectona grandis)

Latin name:Also known as

Burma teak, Rangoon teak, moulmein teak, gia thi, jati sak, kyun, mai sak, rosawa, and many other local names

Uses:

Ship and boatbuilding, veneer, furniture, exterior construction,
carving, turnings, and other small wood objects

Sustainability:

This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. However, because of a recent (Feb. 2021) military takeover of the country of Myanmar (the biggest source of teak worldwide), sanctions have been placed on imported teak. Since the primary company exporting teak is government-owned, sale of the wood is linked to continuing human-rights violations and oppression
