Genuine Fijian Mahogany is SUSTAINABLE, it is plantation grown similar to a crop of wheat which makes it a fully renewable resource. Our Swietenia Macrophylla otherwise known as TRUE Genuine Fijian Mahogany was planted on the Fijian Islands after World War II with the intention of being fully sustainable resource. The Fijian Mahogany forest plantations are rigorously regulated by the Fijian Government to manage the sustainability and milling process of their Mahogany.
