The sales prices for Costa Rican Plantaion Teak has remained about the same for about a decade or more and is likely to drop from here from the oversupply of Teak plantations in CR and Panama as well as all of central and south america. In CR alone there are more than 20 million hardwoods trees planted .
As of last week the ITTO again published the facts for CR Plantation Teak at 350$-500$ per meter cubed for logs 15-25 years old . My TATF trees that I visited and all others ones surrounding my own on 4 different farms were missing and so badly dwarfed that in the very rare case that TATF were legit ,I doubt seriously if any profit will be had after the 25 year final cut,there simply will not be enough logs/yield resulting to pay for labor,machines,gas,oil,loading,transport,marketing costs,delivery to limon-seaport,insurance,loading,-FREIGHT-ect.TATF investors may be sent a bill after final harvest asking nicely to help pay for processing costs that are due. But I really doubt there ever will be a harvest ----Why? Because TATF is a scam.
Go to FBI.
