All of the Genuine Honduras Mahogany that DeMarco Collection harvests from the forests of Honduras is harvested responsibly. DeMarco Collection works directly with the ICF (Instituto Nacional de ConservaciÃ³n Forestal) which is a Federal agency of Honduras that regulates the harvesting of all Mahogany in Honduras. As such DeMarco Collection is responsible to planting 4 saplings for every tree that is harvested. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood is also offered to DeMarco Collection clients. Please click on the links below to learn more about both the ICF in Honduras (Spanish), and the FSC:DeMarco Collection Custom Wood Doors and Windows sells only genuine Honduran Mahogany. No Substitutes. No fakes. No made up names to imply that the customer is buying real Honduran mahogany when, in fact, the product being sold has no botanical connection to true Honduran Mahogany (Sweitenia Macrophylla). Over the last 20 years Honduras mahogany has become more difficult to purchase, and once you locate true Honduran mahogany you will quickly learn that the supply is limited and the export requirements that began in 2003 make it highly cumbersome to export. The reaction to the hurdles of buying genuine Honduras mahogany has been for some suppliers to create marketing solutions, i.e., Honduran mahogany lookalikes with names such as Sapele, Philippine mahogany, African mahogany, Royal Mahogany, Lyptus, Santos Mahogany, Brazilian Mahogany, and numerous others.
DeMarco Collection Custom Wood Doors and Windows has had its plant and saw mill located in Honduras for almost 10 years. We are the largest plant (28,000 square feet) and oldest continually operating custom wood door and window manufacturer in all of Honduras. As such we have spent years cultivating sources for buying the best Honduran Mahogany at the best prices, which we pass along to our customers. We source our Honduran mahogany directly from the jungles of Honduras and cut the cants at our own saw mill and dry in our own kilns. No middle man to drive up prices. We are able to offer our customers planks finished on all four sides, to the customers dimensions, in any grade the customer specifies, including book matched planks, veneers, and thin cut (1/8"-1/4") lumber.
