Teak wood is known to be highly durable for wood from natural forest and less durable for wood from short rotation plantations. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is useful for estimating chemical and physico-mechanical properties such as decay resistance. In this study, the natural durability of commercially-grown teak wood was determined and correlated with NIRS data for rapid prediction of teak durability and to address conditions for future applications.
