Planting and care

Red Sandalwood is a species of Pterocarpus native to India. It is found in south India in Kadapa, Chittoor, mostly in the hilly region of Nepal, in Pakistan and in Sri Lanka. It is fast-growing when young, reaching 5 m tall in three years even on degraded soils. It is not frost tolerant, being killed by low temperatures.

Sunlight: Full Sun
Soil: Well-drained soil
Water: Medium
Temperature: 20 degrees and 30 degrees C
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Sandal Wood Red

  • Sandal trees grow mainly on red ferruginous loam, overlying metamorphic rocks, chiefly gneiss.
  • They can tolerate shallow, rocky ground and stony or gravelly soils, avoiding saline or calcareous soils, and are not exacting about the depth of the soil.
  • Rich and moist soils such as well-drained alluvial soils, do not support sandalwood well; the heartwood in such trees will be deficient in oil.
  • Trees grown on poor soils yield better oil, though they cannot withstand waterlogging.

Typical uses of Sandal Wood Red
