Editor's Comment: Panama has relatively tough laws - which they actually enforce - to protect the forests, trees, and the environment. Cocobolo occurs naturally in the Panamanian jungle, as opposed to Teak which is not indigenous to Panama. You have to get a permit to do anything with wood or lumber in Panama - you need a permit to drive down the road with the truck of a tree in the back of your pickup truck. It's tightly regulated.
