There are three Mahogany trees

The Florida or Caribbean Mahogany is Swietenia mahogani and is the smallest (height) of the three ...although still a large (native) shade tree at about 40 feet mature

The largest Mahogany tree in Florida (really old) has a circumference of over 12 feet and a crown spread about 70 feet

The Swietenia macrophylla grows in Central and South America and can reach 120 feet tall

The African mahogany Khaya ivorensis is from the west coast of Africa

Mahogany is a carefree evergreen hard wood shade tree. Plant in most any soil with decent drainage, water to establish and feed with a balanced fertilizer (like 6-6-6) during the warm and hot months
