Manufacturing Feq Lumber
Straight, vertical grain, Feq grade Teak is what everyone wants. This is an even smaller percentage of the normal yield. It is still possible to get this high quality but a larger overall volume must be purchased to meet the needed yield of Feq, long, and wide Teak that many builders and designers request. As demand rises, logs getter smaller yielding less Feq quality Teak. This is the one natural limitation behind all this. However, the market value of the logs has grown despite the lower percentage of Feq contained in each log.Tectona grandis, the only true teak, has for hundreds of years been recognized as a valuable commodity to be carefully nurtured, thoughtfully exploited, and staunchly protected. It grows in the mixed deciduous forests of Asia, or in plantations, in abundance and perpetuity. Teak, a lovely and durable timber, has a colorful history, and a sure future. Exceptional durability, stability, strength, and appearance make teak one of the world’s leading timbers.Teak is not, as many believe, a tropical rainforest timber. Its natural habitat is the mixed deciduous forests of Asia.
