    Dear Sir

    I have heard that mahagony tres are often susceptible to shoot borere attack.Hypsipyla grandella,which bores into twigs and seed capsules of trees and attack new shoots and are seldom seen attacking hardened-off shoots. so i advise u too plant it in a small scale.

    Dear Sir!

    I am looking to establish plantations in two states, viz., Bihar & Uttarakhand.
    Basically, I think I will need stumps for the purpose of planting.

    However, before that, I want to understand the business dynamics and feasiablity of mahogany plantations. Any help in this direction will be highly appreciated.

    Pl. note that mahogany is easily propogated by fresh sowing of seeds.The
    basic varieties to grow are : 'SWEITENIA' AND 'MACROPHYLLA' .Sweitenia is
    a comparatively faster growing variety than macrophylla.I HAVE TREES growing at home [just 8 in number] ,aged 20 approximately 60 ft. in ht. and
    about 12" to 24" in dia.AT MY FARM,there are about 200 trees[mainly macrophylla] ,aged 12 at a spacing of 6 ft.x 6 ft. 20 -25 ft. in ht.with a dia.
    of 4"-6".rainfall is seasonal,heavy and the land is at a gradient of 30 deg.You
    could easily go in for a plantation,but personally i feel the wait is long,but worth the trouble.I don't think pests and borers would pose a big problem. you could procure healthy plants 2 -3 ft. in ht. at reasonable rates from any of the EMPRESS GARDENS, viz. PUNE/KOLKATA/CHENNAI/DEHRADUN.
