About the wood:
From the The Wood Database,
|Common Name: Mango, Hawaiian MangoScientific Name: Mangifera indicaDistribution: Tropical Asia and OceaniaTree Size: 80-100 ft (24-30 m) tall, 3-4 ft (1-1.2 m) trunk diameter
Color/Appearance: Because of the spalting that is commonly present, the wood can be a kaleidoscope of colors. Under normal circumstances, heartwood is a golden brown, while other colors such as yellow and streaks of pink and/or black can also occur. Paler sapwood is not always clearly defined. Curly or mottled grain patterns are also common.
Sustainability: This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices, but is reported by the IUCN as being data deficient.
Common Uses: Furniture, ukuleles, veneer, plywood, turned objects, and flooring.
Comments: Known much more widely for its fruit, Mango trees also yield beautiful and valuable lumber. The wood is considered very eco-friendly, as some Mango plantations harvest the trees for lumber after they have completed their useful fruit-bearing lifespan.
