    I own 2 acres of land in vellore dist.,tamil nadu.I would like to grow teak wood as i am not cultivating any thing in that land.some people came to our village and gave us some information about teak plantation and its benefits they are for example"after 10 yrs you will get good profit for your investment and some trees would even sell upto 1 lac Rs. " etc. and they said the breed is burma teak
    but we forgot to get their contact details .so if any one is aware of that or if u have any sort of details on teak plantation,seedlings availablity etc. it would be helpful for me also if u can please give me contact details of people in and around tamil nadu who deal with teakwood seedlings and polypots.

    thankyou!

    Dear sir,

    You have asked about teak plantations.And also somebody sggested you that you will get Rs one lakh per tree after 10 years.I think its not possible.if you plant root/stump of teak the cultivation period is minimum 25 to 30 years.what about yield of the root/stump plantations? Its very very less.Recently i gone to Kallathur ,Jeyakondam,Ariyalur Dist for field physical inspection for sandalwood plantations.i met one farmer his name is Mr selvamani.he grown some 60 teak trees (stump planting) upto 20 years..And also he sold the entire 60 trees for RS one lakh.So its fact .But iwant to suggest to plant Tissue culture teak plantations.The growth rate of the TC teak is 10 to 12' per year.The root/stump also grow very rapidly like TC teak i.e 8 to 10'per year.But you never get uniform growth in stump plantations.In TC teak plantations 90% uniform growth will be there.You wll get some asured income of Rs 8000/- to Rs 10000/- per tree on completion of 10 years.
    its not possible in stump/root plantations.

    For more details plz.contact us;

    I have a 70 Acre teak plantation in the foothills of the Western Ghats; that is more than 12 years old. So from personal experience, I can tell you not to expect any substantial income at the end of 10 years [leave alone fancy expectations like Rs.5000/- per Tree at the end of 10 years]. May be just one or two Trees in the periphery may fetch that kind of price.

    The Income from thinning at the end of 9 or 10 years will not be better than a single harvest of Casuarina Plantation [which could be harvested in just 4 to 6 years period and could be harvested twice in a span of 10 years time]. Hence, income from a teak plantation will begin to accrue after 15 years or so. You can expect substantial income only after 25 -30 years.

    So please do not fall a prey to nursery/sapling vendors. If the promises that you keep hearing/reading about teak plantations are even partially true, then 60-70 % of the lands in India would have long been converted into Teak Plantations.

    I know Vellore to be a very hot and dry place and where Labour is also costly; therefore I would advise you to probe other prospects. There is one large Teak Plantation started by ‘Anubhav Plantations’ - in a village called Punnaipadi [or something like that] that is just 7 to 8 Kms away from Arcot - you can personally visit the farm, if you are adamant in starting a teak farm. Please do not fall a victim to vendors of Tissue Culture; Saplings; and Consultants who sill make you think that growing Teak is like growing green Gold.

    Regards

    Hello,

    You mentioned about Casuarina. What is that?. Will this grow in Madurai District Area where temperature is high. What sort of care is required. How much it will cost If I plant in one acre. How many trees I can plant in One acre.

    Regards

    Dear Anil Guptha,

    You have asked about tissue culture teak plantations and its return,I not forgot your posting in the same site.What You told that the Price of teak stump/root is Rs 35/-per stump/root.the same thing is availiable from Rs 2 /- per stump and thum size root will be Rs 5/-per stump in tamilnadu.By planting your stump the farmer will get Rs 10000/-per tree in sixteen years.Is it possible?.I have already mentioned one testmony that Sri Selvamani,Kallathur Village,Jeyakondam TQ,Ariyalur Dist,tamil;nadu sold sixty teak trees (promoted by stumps/roots) for Rs 100000/- on completion of 20 years.Rs one lakh for sixty trees not for a single tree.In this connection you have stated that one farmer in rajasthan named Syed planted teak saplings in his garden were wornout.mr Guptha birth and death is a committed ,common and universe .No body will challange the nature.What i mentioned in my postings tissue culture teak saplings gives good yield.I am doing the tissue culture teak plantations past nine years.I am having the nine years trees with me.By planting tissue culture teak saplings will reach the girth of 32 inches on completion of sixth year.After that the growth will slow because the density will more and hardnesswill be there.So on completion of tenth year the girth will be 40 inches.We can get 6 cbt to 8 cbt on completion of tenth year.The salient feature in the tissue culture is setting of heartwood (inner portion)wiil be morethan 70%.But in your stump planting you will get lesasthan 30%.The setting of the heartwood is the deciding factor of the price of timber.An account of this you will get more price .But this is not possible in stump planting.Mr Guptha you the present market rate of the teak timber?I will tell you 1.First quality =Rs 3500/-per Cubic Feet,2.Second quality =Rs 2500/-per cft3.Third quality =Rs 1500/-per cft .I quoted the last price i.e Rs 1500/-per cft.So eight cft teak timber will comes Rs 10000/-per tree.I think this is the scientficv and systematic analyis.So you go for tissue culture teak plantations.

    thank you
