In Costa Rica the co reforests pastureland with teak trees. Teak in it's natural growth state is spread out- Teak as grown on the new Costa Rican treefarms that look like orchards is harmful to the soil as a concentration of fallen teak leaves acidizes the soil excessively (apparently nature has a reason for naturally spacing teak trees with large distances inbetween). This info from a farmer and others in Costa Rica who are not in favour of the concept of growing Teak in plantation style land use systems because of what it does to the soil.
