Acacia trees are not hard to find in the Philippines. You see them

standing along the roads and on uncultivated land. The wood of

the acacia is a non-indigenous hardwood. Beautiful, with a broad

colour spectrum of warm to light segments. It is sustainable:

it grows fast (the trees reach their full height in sixteen years) and

for every tree that is cut down another one is planted.

 

Planting the trees is regarded as an investment which yields a

profit after a number of years when the wood is sold. The chopping

of the trees, the trading and the processing is controlled by the

government by means of certification. In some parts of the city

permits to cut down trees are not granted.
