Teak wood is a tropical hardwood valued for its durability. It is considered an immensely valuable resource in Indonesia, where, beginning in the mid-20th century the central government established an organization dedicated to cultivating and preserving Indonesian teak trees. Species of teak wood include Nangpur teak, Burmese teak, and Central Province teak.
Teak wood was introduced to the western world after the Dutch colonized Indonesia. It was first used for shipbuilding, but later became a popular material for furniture.
