COSTA RICAN FSC PLANTATION TEAK
FSC® Plantation Teak LumbeR FROM PACIFIC COAST TEAK…
Scientific studies have proven that the properties of Forest Stewardship Coucil (FSC) plantation teak and old-growth forest teak wood are virtually identical. Both types of teak are characterized by dense, durable and beautifully grained wood. Using the same growing conditions, plantation-grown teak is virtually identical to the timber produced in Southeast Asia’s tropical forests with less impact on the environment.
But, while plantation teak and the old growth forest teak are essentially similar, choosing plantation teak certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ rewards proper growing techniques that are environmentally friendly, saves on material cost and does not support corrupt governments. Because Pacific Coast Teak has chosen its FSC® plantation teak areas carefully, less water and less fertilizer is needed to grow our teak. By growing teak on plantations, sustainable harvesting is accomplished without environmental degradation. As well as growing teak in South and Central America greatly reduces shipping costs.
