Visiting a Teak Plantation in St. Andrews

Visiting a Teak Plantation in St. Andrews

Teak is a valuable tropical hardwood which grows excellently on Grenada.

Moses of Corinth toured through this private plantation in search of usable trees for his sawmill business.

Unfortunately, many of these trees were planted too close together and so they have not expanded to their full potential size. Along the edges of the plantation there are some large usable trees but in the middle they were not getting enough light.

Still, it was a magical experience to be surrounded by such beautiful and valuable trees. Teak is just another agricultural option for Grenadian farmers. Our unique climate allows many tropical hardwoods to flourish and teak is no exception. These trees were tall and healthy – a lot of potential here!
