My two years old Mahogany










This is my 2 years and 2 months old Mahogany tree.
At last it is taller than me now. Some are 4x taller than me already. Only one foot tall like just a grass when we planted last August 2006. Ever since i love planting and gardening. This is one of the reason why i went home because i want to see how tall they have grown and if what more they need. These were fertilized with Urea (complete) every six months and watering them every two months if no rain and during summer time.Now that two years old, no need to care them anymore. I just hope that they will grow soon!

***********************************************************************************
Mahogany has a generally straight grain and is usually free of voids and pockets. It has a reddish-brown color, which darkens over time, and displays a beautiful reddish in color when polished. These properties make it a favorable wood for crafting furniture.
Mahogany resists wood rot, which makes it suitable for boat construction. It is also often used for musical instruments, particularly the backs of guitars.A wide variety of electric guitars are also made from mahogany, Mahogany is now being used for the bodies of high-end stereo phonographic record cartridges and for stereo headphones where it is noted for “warm” or “musical” sound.
