Dalbergia Granadillo Seized Being Transported Without Documentation

0.6m3 of Dalbergia granadillo was confiscated by police in the town of Ixtlahuacán, Colima on Mexico’s Pacific coast, not far from the port of Manzanillo.


The vehicle transporting the flitches was unable to provide official documentation proving that the material was from legal origin.

This comes just days after a major operation by Mexican authorities resulted in the seizure of nearly 2,500m3 of wood in it’s southern frontier states.
