Domestic Mango wood is a sustainable resource. Mango trees grow to heights of 60 to 100 feet with girths up to 5 feet in diameter. It takes a mango tree about 20 years to reach this size, and at that point, the tree stops producing fruit (or produces far less). Mango farmers then cut down the tree and plant younger trees so that they can continue to produce and sell fruit.
In the past, the cut-down mango trees were just discarded but now these trees are used to produce a wide range of items, in our case, furniture! This thwarting of waste is one thing that makes mango wood part of an eco-friendly approach to the manufacture of wood items.
