Other common names for Swietenia macrophylla include Genuine Mahogany, Honduras/Honduran Mahogany, "Big Leaf" Mahogany and South American Mahogany.
Genuine Mahogany is considered the "true" mahogany when compared to African Mahogany. Grown throughout South and Central America, Genuine Mahogany trees produce highly-valued lumber known for its beautiful characteristics and excellent working properties. In the early 1990s, Costa Rica and the United States began petitioning the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) for the protection of Genuine Mahogany through study, conservacy and development of sustainable interntational trade recommendations. In 1995, Genuine Mahogany was added to the list of protected species which impacted the availablility and price of Genuine Mahogany in United States.
In the last 20 years, supply channels have slowly restablished themselves and adapted to the legal requirements for importation and sale of Genuine Mahogany. Prices remain high. Good quality lumber requires partnerships with reputable mills and brokers. TBM has worked hard to develop solid supplier partnerships in order to maintain a high, consistent quality of Genuine Mahogay for our door/window, architectural millwork, custom stair builders, fine furniture and musical instrument manufacturing customers.

Genuine Mahogany has excellent workability. It machines, shapes and turns easily. Ideal for precision millwork including carving. Very stable after kiln-drying. Durable heartwood; highly resistant to fungi and natural decay with moderate resistance to dry-wood termites.
