Environmental Information

The Fijian Mahogany is a unique resource in the world today.  The plantations are over 40 years old and are naturally regenerating.  In the forests, you'll find trees of all ages.  The Fijian government has certified this product as a plantation wood, non-indigenous to Fiji and Fiji Hardwood Corporation Limited, the government organization responsible for overseeing the Mahogany development, has applied to SmartWood to undergo the forest management certification scoping process. 

This plantation program is particularly special because of the Fijian culture.  All the plantations lands are owned by local clans of the Fijian people, and those clans are extensively involved in the forest maintenance, as well as harvesting and processing of the material.  The government has declared the forests a national resource, and has committed itself to seeing that the plantations are used for the greatest good for all Fijians.  

No logs will be sold overseas--all initial processing must be done in Fiji, and in the near future, SFI plans to add more value added processing programs for the mutual benefit to our customers and the Fijian people. 

We would like you to learn more about the plantations, how we harvest the wood, and how important local involvement is to the long term success of this program.  Most importantly, we would like you to see how this wood will lead to better education, better health conditions, and to a better future for the people of Fiji.
