Distribution:

So. American Mahogany grows naturally southern Mexico to Brazil, as well as many of the Carribean islands. Although it is often referred to as Honduras Mahogany, because that is where the first exports we reported to have begun, it is no longer exported from Honduras. It grows in dry forests, but has all be know to grow in moist setting also. Often times this species is referred to by the location of the origin of the timber, an example is Brazilian Mahogany's place of origin is Brazil, etc.

General Description

The sapwood is a whitish to yellowish color, and is very distinct from the heartwood. The heartwood varies in color depending on the region it grows. The color range is from a yellowish-tan to light grayish-tan to a pinkish-tan. The heartwood darkens with exposure and kiln drying to a rich red or brown color. The grain is often straight, but can contain ropey, swirly, or curly grain patterns. Storied rays can produce wavy horizontal bands across the surface of flat sawn boards. The texture can range from fine to medium and sometimes even coarse.
