The natural beauty of solid timber lends itself to any residential or commercial application.
Fiji is the home of the world’s finest plantations of Genuine Mahogany.
Fiji’s Mahogany Timber (Swietenio Macrophyla) is a renewable resource from plantation forests.
Further developing sustainable forest management is reducing pressure on, and promoting the restoration and conservation of Fiji’s indigenous forests.
Looking to the future and the generation of income and employment, diversification of the country’s trade commodities and at the same time maintaining the multiple benefits and services of an intact forest cover, the Fiji Government and landowning communities began an extensive planting program of the non indigenous tree species, Mahogany in the early 1950’s.
Commercial harvesting of mature Mahogany began in 2003 and has expanded since then, providing high quality hardwood timber on a sustainable manner to both the export and domestic processing industries.
Close to 90% of land in Fiji is communally owned by the indigenous landowners. The effective participation of landowners in the development of their own forests has become vital to develop the sustainable management of Fiji’s Forests and to ensure the resource remains intact in perpetuity.
