Sandalwood Plantations(Wooden Gold)

Sandalwood Plantations(Wooden Gold)

Sandalwood plays an important role in the religious life of Indians and quoted in the Indian literature for more than two thousand years, and etymologically it is derived from Sanskrit, चन्दनंchandanam or Chandan. The botanical name of the Sandalwood is Santalum Album, and the woods are heavy in size, yellow in colour, and fine-grained. Unlike many other aromatic woods, they retain their fragrance for decades; sandalwoods are medium-sized hem parasitic tree. Sandalwood is immensely valuable and native to Southern India.

Amongst several countries in the world, only India, Indonesia, Australia, New Caledonia, Fiji Islands, Philippines, Srilanka, and Malaysia has a suitable climate conditions for cultivation of sandal trees. Due to limited cultivation, fragrance and medicinal values, sandalwood has a huge demand in the global market, and Sandalwood plantations constitute a highly lucrative business. The Indian Sandalwood has retained its dominance over other sources because of its quality, and commands high prices for its essential oil. Globally, the sandalwood supplies are not able to match its rising demand.

The sandalwood plant is widely cultivated and long lived, although harvest is only viable after many years. Santalum Album is the primary source of sandal wood, the central part of the sandal tree, the heartwood or sandalwood and the derived oil, is the only part of the tree, used for its fragrance. Due to the high value of sandalwood, it has led to several attempts of cultivation, increasing the distribution range of the plant. The ISO Standard for the accepted characteristics of this essential oil is ISO 3518:2002. The height of the sandalwood tree is between 4 and 9 meters, and lives up to one hundred years of age. Harvest of the tree involves several curing and processing stages, also adding to the commercial value. These wood and oil have high demand and is an important trade item in India.

In India, sandalwood is used for a variety of reasons: Making idols of gods and goddesses, furniture, medicine and religious purposes. Traditionally, the sandalwood was sourced from forests under strict government supervision and control. With large scale chopping of sandalwood trees, and rising instances of illegal trade in sandalwood, the rising demand for sandalwood imports from other nations, the government had to change its sandalwood policy, allowing the private landowners to grow the sandalwood tress on their lands, as per a government of India liberalized policy in 2001. Sandalwood is a premium wood due to the following factors:

Agarwood (Wood of GODs)

The most precious plant that turns a commoner into a Billionaire

Agar incense scattering perfumes is a mark of purity! Agar is a mesmerizing perfume that shows the way of salvation to the devotee, who worships God! The fragrant Agarwood we use from past to the present day derives from the ‘Agarwood’ tree, also known by its scientific name ‘Aquilaria malaccensis’! Aquilaria could also be a genus of fifteen species of trees, called aligns aloes or lign-aloes trees, within the Thymelaeaceae, native to Southeast - Asia. The genus is best known, alongside Gyrinops, because the principal producer of the resin-suffused Agarwood used in aromatic incense production, especially Aquilaria malaccensis. Agarwood trees, which are used as vitals within the cleanliness of our surroundings and in our health care, are a rare plant species which can turn the commoner into a millionaire!

The Agarwood tree grows to a height of 21 meters and girth of about 1.5 to 2.4 meters. The stem is nearly straight and fluted. Agar plant prefers high humid, subtropical climate with rainfall 1800-3500 mm once a year. It grows from water level up to 500 meters altitudes and requires lots of sunshine. It prefers well-drained deep sandy loam to loam rich in organic matter but can grow in marginal soils and also in shallow soils over rocky beds with cracks and crevices. It grows well in hill slopes and forest environment. The Agar growing areas show that it prefers acidic soil reaction. The mycorrhiza and other beneficial fungi which seem to be liable for oil formation within the Agar tree, being soil-borne, require acid soil for its growth.

When the Agar tree is infected by certain fungi in its heartwood, the tree responds to the present attack by releasing a kind of resin to defend itself. This resin inside the tree gives rise to the formation of resinous heartwood, known as oud or Agarwood. It continues to be used in India, China, Japan and other Asian countries for hundreds of years as incense burnt in their homes, in royal palaces, at places of worship, all the auspicious and inauspicious occasions.

Resin is analogous to gluten and pulp and an integral part in Agarwood. Within the center of the trunk, the resin is produced and black in colour. The upper part of the tree is white or dark brown. The more darky the black, it is superior in quality.

The tree grown for over 8-10 years is cut, and the resinous wood known as Agarwood formed in the heartwood of the tree is removed meticulously in a special manner. The Agar or oud oil oozes from the resin. Depending on the quality of the resin, it is priced between Rs.1 lakh to 5 lakhs per 1kg. From 70kgs of Agarwood 20ml of Agar oil or oud oil is extracted. The global prices of Agar oil or oud oil are priced between Rs.40 – 80 lakhs

Oud oil, distilled from oud, has been used as a perfume, in its pure raw form. Oud oil is mystical, tantalising, alluring and intoxicating, so diverse and sophisticated that words fail to capture its continuously evolving aroma. It’s one of the oldest materials used in perfumery and considered to be one among the most expensive perfumery raw materials. Oud oil has also been used as a medicine for therapeutic benefits by Chinese, Indians and Arabs for hundreds of years.
