Westminster’s Eco-Friendly Teak
As one of the leading manufacturers and online distributors of teak furniture in North America, Westminster recognizes the influence it plays on the industry and has taken every step to ensure that our products are manufactured in an environmentally responsible manner. We have made our company’s policy to source our teak wood only from government managed, credibly certified forests.
Teak does not grow naturally in the rainforest in any sufficient numbers to warrant commercial logging in the way Pine does. Historically, the Dutch started teak plantations in Indonesia, perhaps, some 200 years ago after which, the government of Indonesia has since taken over and developed it to what it is today; probably the world’s largest teak plantations, managing nearly 5 million acres of sustainable forests. Through careful and responsible forest management, trees are constantly being planted at a rate that far exceeds those being felled.
Because teak is, by far, a slow growing crop, the Perum Perhutani managed system incorporates agro-forestry for the locals to farm other crops between the alleys or rows of planted teak trees, throughout the life cycle of the trees. This process provides the local people with additional income along with the benefits the teak industry has brought to their local economy.
