Abstract :The present research was conducted to investigate the trend and recent condition of teak wood production and marketing in Central Java using Cepu Forest District (CFD) as a case study. Two comparisons are made in this paper to determine price trend to reflect true market value of teak log. CFD produces a good quality of timber. The average annual production of teak log was about 45,769m^3 among which more than 60% of their logs were categorized as grade A3. More than 80% of the total log was sold in domestic market. Teak logs are marketed using four selling system: direct selling, selling by contract, big and small auctions. After the economic crisis, a large amount of teak logs coming from illegal logging has impact to be an excess of supply of teak log over its demand in Java. As a consequence, the real price of teak logs which was taken by CFD from their auctions sharply dropped and never reaches to the same level as before. The most important thing is a high indication that many teak stands in CFD were harvested as consequence of a high illegal logging attacked their teak plantations during the economic crisis. A high rate of unplanned harvesting especially to the remaining stands in illegal-logging areas brought unbalance distribution of the teak growing stock. In present day, more than half of stands in CFD are under age class 1 and it gives a bad sign for unsustainable harvest in the future.
