TFS Sandalwood 2014 Project

The TFS Sandalwood Project 2014 gives you the opportunity to grow your own Indian Sandalwood, a wood with strong demand and depleted supplies.

High Demand & Increasing Price

Sandalwood has been an integral part of Asian culture and religion for thousands of years, and remains a key ingredient in the fragrance, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and religious products markets. Sandalwood features in perfumes, cosmetics and toiletries, medicines, medicinal skin care products, carvings, fashion, furnishings, incense and religious ceremonies around the globe.

The Indian species of Sandalwood (Santalum album) commands the highest price at auction due to its superior oil yields and long-term market acceptance. The price of wild Indian Sandalwood sold at auctions in India has continued to increase at a compounded rate of approximately 15% over the last 22 years with the price for Indian Sandalwood logs averaging over A$100,000 per tonne.

Experts predict a continuing increase in price of at least 5% per annum due to the ever-increasing supply/demand imbalance of Indian Sandalwood.

Depleted Supplies

Due to high demand for the wood and oil of the Indian Sandalwood tree and the depleted supplies from wild harvesting in India, TFS grown Indian Sandalwood is the world’s largest sustainable source of Indian Sandalwood.

Australia has the only known large-scale commercial plantations of Indian Sandalwood in the world, with TFS being the largest.

Optimal Growing Conditions

The tropical north of Australia displays ideal conditions for the healthy growth of Indian Sandalwood.

The intellectual property built up by TFS over 15 years of plantation experience is second to none. Supporting this is over 20 years of government research into Indian Sandalwood silviculture.

Experienced Managers

The TFS Sandalwood Project 2014 (TFS 2014) (ARSN – 167 882 493) is the company’s sixteenth annual Indian Sandalwood Project.

TFS has an experienced team of professional foresters, agronomists, research officers and agricultural scientists who manage the Plantations. An ongoing program of monitoring and research is used to maintain good growth and survival rates.

The TFS parent company, TFS Corporation Ltd, listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in December 2004 (ASX Code: TFC). In 2008 TFS acquired leading global Sandalwood distiller Mt Romance. This added expert knowledge in processing and distillation, as well as a blue-chip client base in the global fragrance industry.

TFS is committed to exploring opportunities in an everexpanding market place with demand for fragrances, religious products and pharmaceuticals made using Indian Sandalwood and its oil forecast to increase.

Dedicated to Sandalwood

TFS is a specialist Indian Sandalwood plantation manager and is committed to the long term development of an Australian grown Indian Sandalwood industry.

TFS first planted Indian Sandalwood in Kununurra Western Australia in 1999 and has since planted almost 7,600 hectares of commercial Indian Sandalwood plantations on behalf of over 3,400 individual growers and institutional investors. By mid 2014 approximately 1,300 hectares of additional Indian Sandalwood will have been planted on behalf of Growers, institutional investors and companies associated with TFS.

TFS has a direct and indirect holding of approximately 2,400 hectares of Sandalwood trees aligning their interest with those of their plantation investors.

The majority of TFS Directors are growers and shareholders in TFS, confirming a dedication by the company to achieve the best possible Sandalwood growth, yields and returns for its Growers.

TFS commenced the first commercial harvest of its Indian Sandalwood plantations in September 2013.

The unique climate of Australia’s tropical north provides an ideal location for the growth of Indian Sandalwood and TFS is committed to preserving this unique region and minimising the company’s environmental footprint.

About Indian Sandalwood

Sandalwood is one of the world’s most valuable hardwoods, selling for over A$100,000 per tonne of heartwood (Tamil Nadu Forestry Department Auctions).

Renowned for its fragrant and medicinal properties, Indian Sandalwood has a wide range of uses in the global fragrance, incense, worship and carving industries.

The Indian Sandalwood tree is a parasite, making cultivation highly specialised. This factor, alongside its strong demand in Asia, the Middle East and in the global fragrance industry, have led to the deforestation of Santalum album in its native environments of India, Indonesia and Timor.
