Mahogany tree farming project report
This is the estimated project report to help you understand the investment required for farming and the expected profit.
|Cultivation cost per acre|
Seedling price – Rs 50 to Rs 100 (depending on availability).
Mahogany plants per acre – 700 to 1000 plants.
1000 plants cost = 1000 seedlings x Rs 100.
The total cost of plants = Rs 1 lakh.
1-acre land preparation cost for farming = Rs 5000.
Labour cost = Rs 15,000.
Barbed wire fencing cost = Rs 70,440 (1-time investment).
Drip irrigation cost = Rs 50,000 (one-time installation).
Irrigation cost = Rs 15000.
Fertilizer and manure cost = Rs 15,000.
Miscellaneous cost = Rs 5,000.
Total 1 year cost = Rs 2,75,440.
To get a 10-year cost first reduce 1 time investment cost then add it later.
Reduce 1-time investment cost from the above-given total plantation cost.
1 time investment = Drip irrigation (Rs 50k) + Barbed wire fencing (Rs 70,440) = Rs 1,20,440.
1 time investment – total cost = Rs 1,20,440 – Rs 2,75,440 = Rs 155000.
Thus Rs 155000 is the cost for 1 year without drip irrigation and wire fencing. This cost will be added later.
Now let’s calculate the plantation cost for 10 years. But first, we have to calculate the cost of 9 years.
9 year cost = 1 year cost x 9 years
9 year cost = Rs 155000 x 9 years = Rs 13,95,000
10 year cost = 1 year cost (included fencing & drip cost) + 9 years cost
10 year cost = Rs 2,75,440 + Rs 13,95,000 = Rs 16,70,440
Total cost of mahogany cultivation = Rs 16,70,440
Now, it’s time to calculate profit.
Mahogany profit per acre
1 Mahogany tree price after 10 years in India = Rs 10,000 to 20k (depending on cubic feet).
Plants per acre = 1000 plants.
Plantation profit = Rs 12,000 x 1000 trees.
Mahogany farming profit = Rs 12000000 (1 crore 20 lahks).
Now calculate the Net Profit.
Net Profit = Profit – Cost of mahogany plantation.
Net Profit = Rs 10000000 – Rs 16,70,440.
Net Profit = Rs 83,29,560.
So this is the mahogany tree profit in India in 1-acre land.
Note – The price may vary according to the region, market, variety, seedling price, labour cost as per location etc.
Mahogany yield per acre
1k trees can yield around 19000 to 32000 cubic feet of stem timber in 1 acre.
Spacing = 6 x 6.5
Trees = 1000 to 1500 trees
A 10-year-old tree yields = 19 to 22 cubic feet.
Let’s take the 20 cubic feet average.
Yield from 1000 trees =1000 trees x 20 cubic ft.
Mahogany tree yield = 20,000 cubic feet per acre.
Cubic feet rate = 600 per cubic foot.
Profit = 600 x 20,000 = 120,00000.
Mahogany cultivation in India
In India mahogany cultivation in Karnataka, Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Bihar are started but not on a large scale. It is sad that North India is still not aware of this tree and they are puzzled by poplar tree farming. India needs to accelerate this endangered tree so that we can also save trees by doing their cultivation for more than 10 years.
However, some farmers have started mahogany cultivation and some were doing it earlier as well. But most farmers are still unaware of this profitable farming tree. Especially farmers living in village areas are not used to thinking or searching for profitable farming ideas. They are still following their traditional cultivation which is not bad but they are hardly able to earn with that. We are not saying to stop your regular crop farming we are just saying that you should at least try mahogany tree plantation at the borders of your farm and keep continuing other crop farming.

It’s true tree farming needs time and other crop cultivation is necessary for farmers to survive. Our motive is to spread this cultivation due to less care and investment in comparison to other tree cultivation. If you also want to involve other farmers in this profitable tree cultivation then I request you to share this knowledgeable blog post via your social media channels such as Twitter, FB, Insta etc.
