- A Teak tree can be up to 150 feet tall.

We firmly believe that not all teak decks and floors are created equally. Our highly professional and experienced staff at Teak Marine opts for the most beautiful old-growth teak for our services. We source our teak from the oldest teak forests that are sustainably managed in environmentally sound forestry; dating back to 1856. Grown in upland deciduous forests, the teaks we work with are grown under ideal soil conditions and rainfall characteristics. Whenever we harvest a mature teak tree for our use, we replace it with a sapling that is grown initially in nurseries!
