Both Australian and Indian Sandalwood have a long history of use. The oils that are extracted from the heartwood are highly prized raw materials for the perfume and cosmetics industries.

Why invest in forestry?

Growing World Markets
The world demand for Sandalwood continues to grow steadily and at the same time its supply is rapidly declining due to illegal and unsustainable harvesting. It is no surprise to see that the price of Sandalwood has risen dramatically over the past 10 years.

In India and throughout Asia, Sandalwood harvested from native forests will not be able to meet the current and future demand for Sandalwood.

Forestry is an asset class

Investment in the agribusiness asset class offers investors the opportunity to diversify into a sector that is negatively correlated to the equity and property markets, allowing you to reduce the volatility of your investment portfolio.

Environmental Advantages
Plantations protect native forests, help reduce salinity and soil erosion and create a sink for greenhouse gases.

The Australian Advantage
With more than 700,000 hectares of hardwood plantation, Australia is well located to supply expanding Asian markets.

Continued Government Support
The Australian Government encourages development of plantation forestry through its ‘Plantations for Australia: 2020 Vision’ statement.

Application fee You can invest in the project by paying the Establishment Services fee of $4,500 (Excluding GST, GST not payable) per Plantation Unit.
Tree species The project will comprise two closely related species of sandalwood:

Australian Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) is native to Western Australia and South Australia. During the early years of settlement in Western Australia sandalwood was an important export. Sandalwood is still harvested from native forests today but supply is limited. In recent years there has been a significant area of Australian Sandalwood established in plantations in the south west of Western Australia.

Indian Sandalwood (Santalum album) is native to India and Indonesia. It is generally regarded as the highest quality sandalwood because of its high oil content and the quality of its oils. Supply is limited from native sources. Since 1999 there has been a significant area of Indian Sandalwood established at Kununurra in Western Australia. ITC is one of the major plantation managers of Indian Sandalwood.

Having different species in the investment diversifies the risk of relying on a single species in a single forestry region.
