The height and diameter of the teak trees are highly dependent on the growing place and soil conditions. Teak trees with a height of 40-45 m, with diameters up to 1.80 to 2.40 m are common. These large trees are free of branches up to 25-27 m.

In general Worldwood prefers a natural seasoning process of teak, which is also the case in most cases. However, in some cases there is no time for a natural seasoning process and we use one of our three kilns. Worldwood ensures that, during seasoning process in one of the drying chambers, no type of wood is mixed with a different type of wood, in order to avoid staining problems. Employees of Worldwood are experienced and qualified to to give the teak the special treatment it deserves.
