Babul/Kikar (Acacia Arabica), Sissoo (Dalbergia Sissoo), Neem (Melia Azadirachta) and Mango (Mangifera Indica).
These woods are most often used to make antique style furniture pieces. Apart from the major furniture articles like sofa sets, dining table etc., smaller pieces of furniture such as wooden stools for household purposes, or wooden desks for schools etc. are also quite favored items.

Going by the booming trends of the Indian wood industry, the government of the country too has taken worthy steps for promoting the signature Indian wood work, wooden industries and plantation farmers in this particular sector. Currently the agro-forestry plantations are able to provide a sustainable harvest of approximately half a million cubic meters per year.

Together with this, a number of new industrial licenses for medium and large scale wood working units are lying pending for approval.
