African mahogany has demonstrated much potential, in many field trials spanning several decades and in furniture manufacturers' evaluations, as a high-value timber species for plantations in northern Australia. It is in the early stages of domestication via a low-intensity, informally-collaborative, mostly-public-sector program of conservation and genetic improvement begun 5 y ago. Silvicultural techniques are being developed through experience in both 'small grower' and larger-scale plantings. See this issue's cover for photographs.
