Myanmar to produce 186,650 tons of teak in 2013

Myanmar is planning to produce 186,650 tons of teak during this fiscal year, said Win Tun, Minister for Environmental Conservation and Forestry, at the Parliament session on July 29.

The amount is about 80,000 tons less than last year's production, he said.

The ministry’s policy is to permit teak and other trees with similar growth pattern to grow for at least 30 years before they could be cut down. This is to sustain the industry, the minister said.

“The teak carried to the harbour are qualified teak and hardwood. The waste of the hardwood is twisted wood and logs with slits. We don’t have lumbers and logs that we can’t sell. We have recorded the in and out of the timber so we have no money to lose. We have taken action against illegal logging,” the union minister said.

The authorities took action against illegal logging by the companies and the local forest rangers, along with a businessman and his accomplices who cut down teak illegally in Chin State.

Myanmar has produced 269,516 tons of teak and 1,355,227 tons of hardwood in 2012-2013 and planns to produce 186,650 tons of teak and 787,600 tons of hardwood this year.

Myanmar will end the export of raw teak and timber starting from April 1, 2014 and will only allow the export of higher-earning finished products, he said.
