Latin America is considered the most investor‑friendly teak market for North American investors. Native to southeast Asia, teakwood has been used for centuries. In its earliest years, teak was used by native tribes of Southeast Asia to build homes, tools, and boats. In an archaeological dig in Berenice Panchrysos, an ancient a port on the Indian Roman trade route, remnants of a teak boat were found, with experts dating.

Teak farms later spread outside of Asia, in the early 1900’s with seeds brought to Nigeria from India and then later to the Americas, with Trinidad & Tobago being the first countries in the region to plant teak.

Soon after, countries like Honduras, Costa Rica, and Panama followed suit as it became apparent that teak plantations were a legitimate way of earning money.
Today there are more than 3 million hectares (2 billion square meters) of land reserved for teak plantations throughout the world.
