TORONTO, July 1, 2014 /CNW/ - Recently, a once-familiar hardwood decking - more specifically mahogany decking - has returned to Toronto, Muskoka, Aurora, Oakville, Mississauga, and all of Ontario. A green hardwood, Swietenia Macrophylla is plantation grown. Mahogany lumber takes hardwood stain; all Fijian mahogany is excellent outdoor hardwood. Green World Lumber offers a great new option to support eco-friendly building choices that frequently complement nature-minded lifestyle.
Our staff is representing plantation grown genuine mahogany as sustainable source of hardwood decking. Mahogany wood is one of the most stable timbers on the market makes it perfect for docks and near-water decks. Mahogany decking is ideal for both high above ground and close to ground decks due to its intrinsic hardiness. It can also be used for wooden patios. Genuine Mahogany accepts stains, oils, and other finishes.
"Genuine mahogany lumber offers Canadians an alternative to species that are supporting widespread harvesting of natural/virgin rainforests all over the world," says Taylor Willson. "Mahogany decking will make it easier to be environmentally responsible while enhancing an outdoor lifestyle without harming the environments. Hardwood decking like mahogany decking which uptakes hardwood stain is extremely durable and weatherproof."
From best part of the Swietenia Macrophylla tree
Genuine mahogany decking is manufactured from Swietenia Macrophylla trees, which is the most premium tropical species for use as hardwood decking. This species, of the Meliaceae family, was discovered in South America more than 5 centuries ago and has been used as a building material for the past century until it was harvested to near extinction. Foreseeing a dire future shortage of genuine mahogany, and having great reverence for the wood, Allied fleets facilitated a massive amounts of Genuine Mahogany seeds to be taken from Honduras and planted on the island of Fiji, across the South Pacific Ocean. Fijian genuine mahogany was thus cultivated for the benefit of all people.
