Teak/Saag

Saag tree or the Teak tree is indigenous to Southeast Asia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Burma. The wood of the teak tree is widely used as commercial wood because of its durability, decay resistance, and water resistance. Since it doesn’t rot in water, teakwood is often used to make yachts and boats. It is also used for making furniture as it is resistant to termites and other pests. Older teak trees, aged between 40 to 80 years provide the finest wood.
