Teak naturally occurs in Burma between latitude 23°-30' North and 10° latitude North. It is predominant in the Pegu Yoma Range in the mixed deciduous forest and also occurs scattered over other areas with varying climatic conditions and geological formations. Its best growth however occurs on the deep, moist, fertile and well drained sandy loam soils of the Pegu Yomas and Chindwin drainage area.
Germination per cent of teak seeds from lower Burma was found to be better than that of seeds from upper Burma, based on experimental results. It is a fire hardy species and in areas located near human settlements which are not deep in the jungle, teak natural regeneration is found to be profuse.
In bamboo flowering areas, gap areas, and in areas in which seedling coppices are already available in great numbers, natural regeneration is proposed.
Under the existing conditions, Burma Teak Selection System with Improvement Fellings is found to be the most satisfactory and suitable method for the present.
