An Amazing Tree
Teak is a hardwood tree. Its wood is highly prized, not only for its aesthetics and beauty, but for the amazing qualities the wood possesses as well. At the ripe young age of 3 years, teak trees develop multiple resistances, such as a resistance to fire, rot, termites and fungus. This makes the cultivation of teak an incredibly sound one, as the tree is resistant to many of the things that plague other trees.

Teak is highly prized for the durability and beauty of the wood. It currently has an established role in the manufacturing of several high-end products. Most commonly, teak is used to manufacture high-end furniture. It is also highly sought after for the production of boats, usually to make their decks. Its rot-resistant quality makes it ideal for boat building.

A Stable Investment
Teak trees have 25-year harvest cycles. This means that an investment in Nicaragua teak is a long-term one (If you’re interested in cashing in on teak more quickly, check out the Panama teak, which is ready for harvest in only 9 years). Indeed, teak is an investment opportunity in Nicaragua that you will want to explore.

Since 1987, teak has outperformed the S&P 500 by nearly 50%! And, unlike the stock markets, teak remains blissfully unaware of recessions and other financial calamities. It simply continues to grow, as does its value. 

Teak prices have historically increased at a rate of about 5.5% a year, and teak prices are likely to continue to increase. Teak is currently being harvested at 8-12 times the rate of replanting. This means greater scarcity, which translates into higher returns for those forward thinking enough to get in on a teak investment early. 

Teak is an investment made by the 1%. Many well-to-do individuals and institutions have significant sums of money invested in teak and other hardwoods. Harvard University, for example, has 10% of its $30 billion Endowment Fund invested in timber.

And finally, teak is an environmentally responsible investment. By investing in teak, you are promoting a reforestation project, making the air cleaner and the world a more beautiful place.
