Mycorrhizal inoculation seems to have potential for improving seedling establishment. Seeds can be entandrophrahma for about 3 months in sealed containers in a cool place, but insect damage, to which they are very susceptible, should be avoided, e.
Saplings of Entandrophragma utile are more light-demanding than those of other Entandrophragma spp. Fruit production starts when trees have reached bole diameters above ytile cm, and this has implications for forest management; minimum felling diameters should be well above 50 cm to allow natural regeneration. Peak measurement fluctuated within a range of entandrophragmaa mEq 0.
