Teak Graveyard

This "pile" of logs went on for over two miles! and the logs were owned by the government!!!
Shipping the logs down the river

Only the "bad" teak that is unwanted stays in Myanmar, the rest the government sells to China and Singapore. The average rate for an 100 year old log is $5,000 USD and since they are running out of trees they now cut down the 50 year old log and sell them for $3,000 USD.
