Key messageTeak (Tectona grandisL.f.) is one of the most important tropical hardwood tree species, which is widely planted in Indonesia. Wood properties are strongly influenced by forest management conditioning further utilization of wood.ContextIn Indonesia, teak wood has been supplied from the state forests (Perhutani) for long rotation teak and from community teak plantations for short rotation teak. Short rotation teak has been harvested at 7–10 years and long rotation teak at 40–60 years… Expand

Quality assessment of teak (Tectona grandis) wood from trees grown in a multi-stratified agroforestry system established in an Amazon rainforest area
Abstract The establishment of agroforestry systems (AFS) is a consistent strategy to integrate sustainable supply of wood, food and environmental services in a single land plot. Teak (Tectona grandisExpand
Physico-mechanical properties of the wood of freijó, Cordia goeldiana (Boraginacea), produced in a multi-stratified agroforestry system in the southwestern Amazon
ABSTRACT Agroforestry systems (AFSs) integrate, through sustainable practices, agricultural and forest crops for the production of wood and food, providing environmental services, and conservingExpand
Formation of heartwood, chemical composition of extractives and natural durability of plantation-grown teak wood from Mexico
The present study aims at determining the quantitative and qualitative properties of teak wood for several age classes and provenances, originating mainly from three localities of south eastern Mexico, while the focus was on the extractives and the natural durability of Teak samples. Expand
Effect of furfurylation treatment on technological properties of short rotation teak wood
Abstract Short rotation teak wood has low quality especially in dimensional stability and durability. Furfurylation treatment was applied to improve technological properties of the short rotationExpand
The growth of three teak (Tectona grandis) clones and its effect on wood properties
A study was conducted on three different clones of superior teak growing in Paliyan, Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta, Indonesia and showed that at five-year-old as well as eight- year-old, the D14 clone has the best growth performance. Expand
Chemical content in Two Teak Woods (Tectona grandis Linn.F.) that has been used for 2 years and 60 years
Teak ( Tectona grandis Linn F.) is classified as luxury wood and belongs to the durable wood, resistant to termite and fungal attacks. The purposes of this study were to analyze and compare theExpand
Relationships between chemical composition and decay durability of Coula edulis Baill as an alternative wood species in Gabon
The general objective of this work was to evaluate the quality of the little-known tropical woods of the Congo Basin, particularly Coula edulis, while looking for new biocidal products. The naturalExpand
The effect of heat treatment on the characteristics of the short rotation teak
ABSTRACT An innovative eco-friendly technology, applied to improve the quality of the short rotation teak, was wood modification by heat treatment. The study was to investigate the effects of heatExpand

An investigation of selected properties of teak wood from 9-year-old plantation in Indonesia. Teak (Tectona grandis L.f) listed in standard EN 13556:2003 (code TEGR) is known as the most popularExpand
Influence of management practices on stand biomass, carbon stocks and soil nutrient variability of teak plantations in a dry semi-deciduous forest in Ghana
Abstract Many forest plantations in the tropics are not well managed due to lack of resources and sometimes expertise; but if plantations are to fulfill their expected usefulness especially forExpand


Juvenile and mature wood characteristics of short and long rotation teak in Java
Teak wood ( Tectona grandis ) as an important forest resource in Indonesia has been processed to wood furniture in large quantities to fulfill an increasing need of both local and internationalExpand
Characterisation of juvenile wood in teak
Fibre length, microfibrillar angle, vessel diameter/percentage and ring width appear to be the best anatomical indicators of age demarcation between juvenile and mature wood, although maturation age often varies among the properties. Expand
A review of heartwood properties of Tectona grandis trees from fast-growth plantations
Teak (Tectona grandis L. f) has been introduced to reforestation programs in many tropical countries for timber production. The use of teak plantations has changed the supply from large-diameter logsExpand
Wood properties of teak (Tectona grandis) from a mature unmanaged stand in East Timor
The wood quality from 50- to 70-year-old Tectona grandis trees from an unmanaged forest in East Timor was assessed. The aim was to evaluate teak in mature stands that had undergone uncontrolledExpand
Proportion and quality of heartwood in Togolese teak (Tectona grandis L.f.)
The heartwood proportion, modulus of elasticity (EL) and wood density at 12% moisture content of 80 trees of various ages from different ecological zones in Togo showed that the percentage of heartwood differed significantly in trees depending on the ecological zones. Expand
Mechanical properties and wood structure characteristics of 35-year old home-garden teak from wet and dry localities of Kerala, India in comparison with plantation teak
Mechanical properties of teak wood grown in home-garden forestry and the anatomical factors influencing timber strength were investigated in comparison with that of a typical forest plantation. NoExpand
Colour of larch heartwood and relationships to extractives and brown-rot decay resistance
Larch heartwood is appreciated for its good mechanical properties, its colour and its texture, and it is often used outdoors because of its natural durability (decay resistance). In this study theExpand

SummaryThe reasons for changes in wood quality and utilization are related to the trends toward harvesting smaller, younger and lower-quality timber, wider use of formerly waste wood, unconventionalExpand
Variation in the natural termite resistance of teak (Tectona grandis Linn. fil.) wood as a function of tree age
Based on the mean mass loss due to termite activity, the sapwood and heartwood regions of 8-year-old trees are the most susceptible to termites while the heartwood areas of the 30-year -old trees showed termite resistance similar to the termites resistance of 51-year,old trees. Expand
