But one thing it is specifically known for is its teak wood plantations. Being home to thousands of teak trees, the beautiful country is a hub for investors looking to invest in high quality teak wood.

Since the ban on exports in countries that were major players in the teak industry in the past, many investors have had to look for opportunities elsewhere. Luckily, countries like Belize have the perfect temperature and climate for cultivation of teak.

The Value and Importance of Teak

The Middle East has used teak for its oil fields for decades. This is because it’s the only type of tree that can withstand harsh and dry weather conditions. Furthermore, it’s resistant to electrical sparks that can otherwise lead to explosions.

Thanks to its high oil content, it’s resistant to decay and mold. It’s used in various products related to furniture, as well as flooring and millwork.

But it’s best known for being used in high-end yachts, for restoration purposes, and decks.
