Harvested Zambezi Teak Info
The wildness and beauty of the African bush growing on the deep and ancient sands of the Kalahari veldt belies the savagely harsh conditions under which diverse species of flora manage to prosper and grow. To survive these adverse conditions requires a resilience and toughness unknown in other species. One of the hardest and most durable of these African hardwood trees, Baikiaea plurijuga, a.k.a. Zambezi Teak, is amongst the most beautiful timbers in the world, with a fine, close grain and deep, rich natural colour. Savanna Wood harvest B. plurijuga on a strictly sustainable basis from the vast forests of Matabeleland situated on the fringe of the Kalahari Desert, under the watchful supervision of the Forestry Commission, an internationally respected body who are charged with the preservation of all indigenous forests. Savanna Wood pay royalties on all timber cut to Forestry Commission and into a trust for development projects in the communities living on the fringes of the forests. These projects include self sufficiency gardening projects, installation of boreholes, development of school and clinic infrastructure and so on (please see our sections on ‘Community Projects’, the Savanna Wood ‘Employment Policy’ and ‘Preserving the Zambezi Teak forests’). Because they benefit so much from these arrangements, it is in the communities’ interests to preserve the forests. If they did not benefit in this manner it would not be in their interests to look after the forest, and they would simply cut the trees down and convert it to agricultural use. This would be a disaster on two counts: firstly we would lose the teak forests, and secondly the very fragile soils of the Kalahari sands would rapidly deteriorate under peasant agricultural practice and become desert wasteland. The sustainable utilization of these forests is therefore essential to their preservation.
