Teaks in Bumisari
Every month, Zaini, site manager, goes to Bumisari village to check the
teak trees and meet Edu, the guardian.
Goldteak planted Indonesian teaks here, originally from East Java. The trees
are about 12 years old, but the trunks are still thin. There are some factors
influence the trees: the soil was a rice field which contains clay more than
sand so the roots do not grow well, the area is near the sea where has less
water, and the trees have big canopy, so the trunk does not grow because
get less sun light.
Although Edu works by himself, he makes sure that the trees are in good
condition during rainy season or hot season.
“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a
long time ago” (Warren Buffett)
