Teak, common name for a tall,
deciduous timber tree, of the verbena family. The tree, which attains a height
of about 30 m (about 100 ft), is native to India, Myanmar and the Malay
Archipelago and is cultivated in the Philippine Islands and Java.
The bluish to white flowers are arranged
in terminal panicles, or clusters. The fruit is a drupe.
Because of its durability and strength,
teakwood is used throughout the world as lumber in shipbuilding and the
construction of furniture; outdoor teak furniture or garden products. Teak has
been known to resist the attacks of insects and the corrosive effects of weather
for hundreds of years. Substitutes for teak, which have been under cultivation
because of the increasing demand, are loosely termed teaks. African teak, or
African oak, is a hardwood tree of the spurge family.
The teak tree belongs to the family Verbenaceae. It is classified as Tectona
grandis. The African teak, or African oak, is classified as Oldfieldia africana.
I wanted to personally thank you for the service you provided me for my recent purchase of outdoor Teak furniture for my Cape Cod ocean front home. Your service was fantastic with detailed information and pricing that was extremely competitive within the marketplace. The quality of the Teak furniture & seat cushions are the BEST I have ever seen. Being I do live on the ocean, the harsh environment was a considerable factor in making my selections. I have attached some recent pictures showing you the furniture placed on my Patio. Thank you for a wonderful purchase and I would highly recommend Golden Teak for any future purchases. MM, MA.
