Teak

Teak or Teck (Tectona, L. 1753) it's a genus of hard wood tropical trees of Verbenacee family. It grows in the south and east-south of Asia and is commonly a component of the tropical and subtropical asiatic forests. The teak is a tree of big, straight and cylindrical trunk, which grows up to 30-40 m in height and 1,5 m in diameter. The lower part of the trunk, above the lowest branches, can exceed 10 m. The Teck wood has a range of colors which vary from pale yellow to bronze and sometimes to red. It contains a natural oily resin which makes it very resistant. Termites don't attack it.
