Native to Cuba and Jamaica, the mahoe (Talipariti elatum) was brought to Puerto Rico during the 1940s and was planted in plantations in forests such as Cambalache, Guajataca and Toro Negro. The mahoe grows up to 60 feet tall with a trunk of 1.5 feet in diameter, but there are occasions when it can reach up to 115 feet in height. It features large, heart-shaped, slightly wrinkled leaves and a grayish bark. From this beautiful trunk comes one of the favorite woods of artisans and woodworkers; they use it for various handicrafts, stringed instruments, house construction, doors, and more. When the majó wood is freshly cut and air-dried, it gives off an ephemeral scent of roses.
