The only Blue Mahoe tree with truly blue wood comes from Jamaica, and is their National Tree. We import our Blue Mahoe from a single plantation in Caribbean that grows a whole forest of sustainable exotic woods. These folks don’t run a tree farm: they sustainably harvest natural trees by select cutting and replanting them in their “ecologically cultivated jungle” that contains many different types of plant and animal life.
Turns out, the wood is stained blue by the minerals in the ground around the plantation. In other parts of the world, the Blue Mahoe tree has wood that ranges from very brown to even more brown. On this plantation, however, the wood’s coloration turns steel-blue, to violet, blue-green, light blue and even very rarely royal blue.
