An ongoing project in Cameroon. We plant Cedrela mexicana trees among local species to revive the local forest. Cedrela trees are resistant to parasites, worms and other wood-boring insects. Trees can be harvested in 15 to 20 years. The wood can be used for moderate construction works, decoration, furniture, roofing, doors, window frames and fencing.
Cedrela mexicana species is also used to realize complex engineering projects such as boat building (especially racing boats). The trees require few soil nutrients. Their flowers produce abundant nectar for honey bees. The trees can serve as minor shades for coffee and cocoa shrubs.
