Cutting Xylocarpus

Small community sawmill in the Kikori River floodplain of Papua New Guinea (see Village Sawmill in PNG). The beautiful red wood is mangrove cedar (Xylocarpus granatum Koenig), a local timber species in the mahogany family (Meliaceae). The wood was harvested using protocols developed by the Kikori ecoforestry project (see Palms of Kikori, PNG). Lucas Mill courtesy of the World Wildlife Fund, but that's another story. [NOTE: The sawyer has a mask for the dust, and headphones for the noise, yet is barefoot].
