Some teak production has achieved certification by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) but we are not sure that "Pacific teak" is actually teak. Some importers are applying the name "Pacific teak" or "New Guinea teak" to a timber more commonly known as vitex (botanical name: Vitex cofassus). This is a major commercial species of the Solomon Islands, so is probably what you are sourcing. Vitex is available certified under several different schemes, you can find our more if you enter "vitex timber certification" in your browser.
