The Acacia Tree's Rate Of Growth

The acacia tree grows rapidly, with a reported growth rate of up to 24 inches per year. They are able to achieve this growth due to their deep taproots which help them access moisture and nutrients deep in the soil. Additionally, their leaves are adapted to store water, allowing the trees to survive in arid conditions. Acacia trees provide food and shelter for many animals. The rapid growth rate of the acacia tree makes it an ideal choice for sustainable forestry. When managed properly, acacia plantations can provide a renewable source of wood with minimal impact on the environment. Additionally, the use of acacia wood helps to reduce pressure on other threatened forests.

The Tenets Of Sustainable Forestry: What Does Sustainable Forestry Mean?

  • Harvesting rates and clearing sizes do not exceed a forest's natural capacity to regenerate.
  • Maintaining natural forest conditions needed for wildlife and healthy ecosystems to function.
  • Protecting and maintaining rare, threatened, and endangered species and forest types.
  • Not clearing forests or replacing them with barren tree plantations.
  • Minimizing or eliminating chemical use.
  • Protecting streams and rivers from soil erosion that degrades water quality and fish habitats.
  • Helping workers, communities, and indigenous people benefit from the forestry operation, and protecting their rights and interests.

Why Acaciaware?

Acaciaware is hand crafted. Each bowl is hand turned from one solid piece of acacia hardwood, not small pieces of wood glued togther. Acaciaware has been sold to consumers, caterers, restaurants and hotels for over two decades. The hard grain of Acaciaware repels penetration by liquids, will not stain or pick up odors like garlic or onions. Acaciaware can handle moderate heat but cannot withstand hot pans or baking dishes taken directly from the oven.  Acacia wood is not dishwasher or microwave safe.
