Advantages of Teak as a Timber Investment

Of all the tropical hardwood species, perhaps among all tree species, teak holds a particular fascination for both consumers and investors, much as gold does among the precious metals. Valued for more than 2,000 years as an extraordinarily durable construction timber in its native range in Asia, teak is now coveted worldwide. Its extremely high dimensional stability and unique aesthetic qualities keep it in high demand for shipbuilding and fine furniture manufacturing. Teak is also well suited for finishings such as door and window frames and any other applications that require a strong, stable, durable hardwood.

As the sustainable supply of teak from natural forests in Asia diminishes, demand for teak increases, and teak prices rise, we expect to see expanded production of plantation-grown teak. Teak cultivation has been the subject of research programs in India, Indonesia, Thailand and Myanmar since 1960, and best-practice techniques for producing high-quality plantation teak are well documented. Because teak is relatively easy to cultivate, has excellent growth rates, and provides a lucrative return, it is very suitable as a plantation timber species in areas with appropriate ecological conditions.

Investment in properly managed teak projects is a "win-win" situation in a country such as Panama, where government programs are in place to encourage reforestation through generous tax credits. The investor makes a profit, new jobs are created, land is reclaimed, and there are long-lasting environmental benefits from tropical wood binding of carbon dioxide.  

Panama also has Permanent Residency through reforestation investments our 100% owned subsidiary company Panama Forestry is structured to provide exceptional packages for this that are managed by Panama Teak Forestry with a long standing history of forestry ownership and management giving the Residency visa investors security in the long term care of their projects.
