    "Old Growth" can be a very misleading term. Don't get caught up in the B.S.

    Hondouran is a species of wood that happens to share the name of a country. The Hondouran mahogany used during that period could have come from Belize, Guatemala, or Mexico...take your pick of any central american country. You can however look up US government documents about wood imports and where the majority of each species came from by year. You will see Mexico at the top of many of those lists.

    Does it matter which country it came from? Nope. Dont get caught up in that B.S either.
