Pod Mahogany Varieties
Afzelia quanzensis is a tall tree, up to 35m, used for timber and agroforestry. This tree is grown primarily for its durable, reddish-brown wood used for furniture, floors, doors, stairs and windows, as well as for firewood. The wood is durable and fairly resistant to termites. The tree fixes nitrogen and the pods and leaves can be used for cattle fodder, as a vegetable, and for medicinal purposes.
