Henry C. Fairweather “The Mahogany Man" started planting mahogany trees in 1982 and has planted over one-hundred thousand trees, surpassing his dream of planting a thousand trees for each year of his life. In 1998, he joined forces with a community-based project, the Belize River Valley Development Program (BELRIV), to continue planting Belize's mahogany and to plant his knowledge into poor communities in the Belize River Valley. He argues passionately that with an enabling environment, extensive cultivation of mahogany will lay the base for the economic transformation of Belize in the 21st Century.

I planted a mahogany tree! It was about 5' tall and now had to be topped because they laid the new utility lines on my side of the easement. It grew very straight and sturdy before that. When the new leaves appear they are pinkish and absolutely beautiful.
Everyone should plant one.
