No ongoing costs.  An equal amount of 22% (inc GST) of each Grower's share of net sale proceeds will be deducted from each harvest to cover licence fees and ongoing maintenance fees.
Annual insurance fees will apply if a finance option is taken.
Trees will be harvested on a progressive basis between the ages of 6 and 18 years.
Finance options with 100% gearing available.
Investing in the Rewards Group Teak Project 2008 will have significant environmental benefits and will provide a plantation source of teak which is expected to reduce harvesting pressure on depleting native teak forests.
The Project aims to produce teak poles and sawlogs. Teak is a premium quality tropical hardwood renowned for its strength, durability and weather resistant qualities. The market value of teak is greater than that of most other plantation timbers.
The trade in teak logs and timber has occurred for centuries. The majority of teak produced is either consumed internally in the country of origin or used in the manufacture of export products for the Western market.
The Project will ease pressure on native teak supplies in Asia, help reduce soil degradation on farmland in north Queensland and create a sink for greenhouse gases.
The term of the Project is expected to be approximately 20 years, with the first harvest occurring when the trees are at least 6 years old.
In 2008, Rewards Group exported its first shipment of teak poles to India.
Significant tax deductions for expenditure incurred by Growers, will be supported by an Australian Taxation Office Product Ruling.

What is Teak?

Teak (Tectona grandis) is commonly considered by ship builders and outdoor furniture manufacturers to be the world’s most versatile, durable and valuable hardwood. Teak is a dense, coarse, close-grained hardwood. It contains high levels of resinous oils that allow it to be naturally resistant to moisture, insects and pervious to the drying effects of weather.

Teak also contains silica, a sand-like compound that permits resistance to fungal decay, water rotting, warping, shrinking, swelling and many damaging chemicals. It will not rust or corrode metals it comes in contact with and it can withstand the elements of all seasons, with its beauty increasing with age.

No other wood compares to teak regarding its durability, elegance, stability and low maintenance, making it the ultimate choice for furniture construction and ship building worldwide.

Prices On the UP AND UP!

Based on the past 30 years of teak price increases, the value of teak trees should grow substantially every year regardless of the instability of global financial markets.

The growing demand for teak timber coupled with limited geographical growing areas and shrinking international supply suggests that increases in teak prices should continue to climb at a steady rate, as it has for the past 30 years.

Limited Supply matched with High Demand: A POSITIVE RESULT

The natural forests of teak around the world are not be able to meet current demand and will not be able to meet future demand for teak.

It is widely believed that the supply of teak into India from West Africa (from which 60% of India’s current imports originate) will be completely at an end in 5 years time. That is to say, the supply from West Africa of 1,500,000m3 per annum of teak will cease in 5 years time.

Teak prices in the past 30 years have risen at more than 7.5% per annum compounded.

Illegal felling of teak in West Africa and Indonesia and other countries is on the rise, a clear indication of rapidly rising prices and rapidly falling supply. In 1982, the domestic Indian market consumed more than 7,500,000m3 of teak per annum (3 times more than it does today). Due to chronic over harvesting around the world, illegal felling and only a small sustainable teak plantation industry, the Indian domestic consumption figure has fallen to 2,500,000m3 per annum.

The world teak marketplace can rapidly and easily absorb a new supply of at least 500,000m3 per annum of Australian plantation teak. There is a stark and obvious need for Australian plantation grown teak to enter the world teak market place.
