From best part of the Swietenia Macrophylla tree

Genuine mahogany decking is manufactured from Swietenia Macrophylla
trees, which is the most premium tropical species for use as hardwood
decking. This species, of the Meliaceae family, was discovered in South
America more than 5 centuries ago and has been used as a building
material for the past century until it was harvested to near
extinction. Foreseeing a dire future shortage of genuine mahogany, and
having great reverence for the wood, Allied fleets facilitated a
massive amounts of Genuine Mahogany seeds to be taken from Honduras and
planted on the island of Fiji, across the South Pacific Ocean. Fijian
genuine mahogany was thus cultivated for the benefit of all people.
