In 1992, Diamond Tropical Hardwoods bought their first degraded cattle farm and began planting teak. In addition to farming teak, we have planted seventy other exotic species including endangered native trees such as mahogany, purpleheart, cocobolo rosewood, granadillo, tigerwood ebony, monkeypod, spanish cedar, yellowheart, goncalo alves, redheart, santa maria, and mango fruitwood. Today, our 12 plantations protect more than 1000 acres of primary and secondary jungle. The company has seen the impact of logging in the rainforest and the widespread harm that it produces. This is why Diamond Tropical Hardwoods adheres to strong principles and certifies their reforestation to be organic and responsible. We were green before it was trendy!
