Acacia mangium plantations produce up to 110 kg or 242.5 lbs of honey per hive per year.
Also Acacia Mangium is an excellent source for charcoal briquettes and artificial carbon where ecological fuels are required,
the pulp is easily bleached to high brightness levels. The pulp and paper industry considers Acacia mangium ready to harvest after only 6 years of growth.

Acasia Mangium wood wool is an environmentally friendly solution for organic packing materials. The tree's sawdust offers a good quality substrate for the profitable gwowing of shiitake mushrooms.
