I have been trying to get information from TATF (Tropical American Tree Farms, SA - Costa Rica) for several weeks now. Last week I recieved an email from Sherry Brunner saying that Steve had passed away after a long battle with cancer!!! They still don't answer emails and they don't answer their phone. I have been a "tree owner" since 1999 and have gotten no proceeds from them. My initial thinning of 1997 Teak trees was a cull of 3 times what the original projections suggested it would be. It is now over six years since said thinning and I have received nothing from them. I believe I have been swindled.
