Mahogany trees are one of the most popular trees, not only for their use in landscape!  The term mahogany has multiple meanings; it apparently originates from the West Indies. Mostly because of the wood, of a native tree with straight grain, moderate density, durable, resistant to rot, with a warm reddish-brown color and easy to work. Furthermore, Mahogany wood is popular for making furniture, paneling, boats, musical instruments and so on. Additionally, Mahogany bark extracts and gum have medicinal use and bark tannin is perfect for coloring  leather, giving it a rich mahogany red hue.
