African Mahogany

This beautiful hardwood is durable and has a light to deep reddish-brown colour. Home to West Africa, it is used in boat building, flooring, furniture, veneer, decorative work, cabinetry, window frames, plywood, and musical instruments, among others. Currently this priced tree is being grown in NT in plantations. Legend has it that an early botanist visiting Africa many years ago, saw this tree growing in a forest and asked his guide what it was called. The reply being ‘Khaya’ – which in the guide’s language meant ‘I don’t know’. The botanist, none the wiser, diligently wrote this down and the genus was named accordingly.
