Teak is one of the most valuable tropical hardwoods and its wood property is characterized as high density, high durability, dimensional stability, and decorative value. Indonesia is one of the top three teak timber producers in the world but timber production in state forest (SF) in Java by state forest company which used to be major teak producer have decreased. Conversely, expanding privately owned forest (POF) are expected as a new resource of teak timber. Through literature research, this paper (1) marshaled characteristics and current situation of SF and POF, (2) discussed the possibility of POF as a new resource of teak timber, and (3) presented challenges of SF and POF for stable teak timber supply. Whereas conventional SF management is characterized as utilizan view and scientific forestry, in general there are no forest planning and organizations for collective management in POF management and trees are harvested depending on local peple's needs for life. Their managements differ widely, thus the timbers' quality are also greatly different. For stable supply of teak timbers, it is needed to manage teak forest stably over the long term through collaboration with local people in SF and address issues of quality and quantity in POF.
