You can’t get high-quality, old-growth mahogany wood anymore. It has protected international conservation status. That’s why the 3,000 lb stack of wood sent from the U-S Department of Agriculture’s Forest Products Laboratory in Madison is considered to be priceless. It’s been stored there for more than a century. Now, it will be used to repair the damage caused at the U-S Capitol during the rioting and destruction on January 6th. The 78 mahogany boards one-foot-by-12-feet were shipped by truck in February. It will be installed in the Capitol building in June.
