Meranti Trees

In the Phillippines, as well as elsewhere in their range, Shorea trees might be called red or white 

lauan, tangile, almon, as well as “dark-red meranti” or "light-red meranti”.But it is meranti 

that makes up the greatest proportion of timber that’s sold as Phillippine mahogany.Meranti

traditionally grows in well-drained soils at low altitudes.Meranti can grow up to 60m in height

and 1.8m diameter at the trunk making it any lumberman’s dream to work with.
