FPC: Sandalwood establishment guide

Guidance
This guide has been developed to help landowners understand the key considerations when establishing a Western Australian sandalwood plantation.

WA sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) is one of Western Australia’s oldest export industries, with the wood first leaving the State in 1845.

Today the oils produced within the heartwood of sandalwood trees are highly valued internationally and are used in a range of products, including perfumes, soaps and cosmetics. The scented wood is also prized and is often powdered to make incense sticks or carved to create ornaments.
