Mahogany (Swietenia mahagoni)

Mahoganies, like oaks, are nice classic trees.  They are strong and hardy trees that fare well throughout the year. Also, they are relatively cheap and therefore a favorite of developers when landscaping new homes.  We have several that were planted by the builder prior to purchasing the house; we since moved them all to the swale area along the north side of our house, and they have done very well.
