Mahogany Plants – High Value Timber Plantations
Mahogany is one of the most valuable tropical hardwoods in the world prized for its beauty, durability, and color.
There are three main varieties of Mahogany; Honduran, West Indian and Central American. Honduran Mahogany is also know as “Genuine Mahogany”, a name that was coined a generation ago to separate it from Mahogany trees of less quality such as those grown in the Philippines. West Indian Mahogany was used extensively by the United Sates to build planes during the Second World War. Although of less quality than Genuine Mahogany, it was close and available at the time. By the end of the war, it had been logged extensively and fell out of favor when metals like Aluminum where used to build aircraft. Also known as Cuban Mahogany, West Indian Mahogany can be found in scattered plantations in parts of Florida and the Caribbean. The third type of Mahogany is found growing in its natural habitat along the coast of Central America. A short, knarly tree, it is of little commercial value.
Mahogany has a straight, fine with an even grain, and is relatively free of voids and pockets. Its reddish-brown color darkens over time, and displays a reddish sheen when polished. Mahogany is a wood workers dream. It turns and sands easily and has remarkable stability. Mahogany is the number one wood choice for high end furniture worldwide. Mahogany is also popular for cabinetry, veneers, musical instruments (Mahogany is one of a few natural tonewoods), boatbuilding, and carving.
