Caring for Sandal Wood White

  • Sandal trees grow mainly on red ferregenuous loam, overlying metamorphic rocks, chiefly gneiss.
  • They can tolerate shallow, rocky ground and stony or gravelly soils, voiding 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 water-logging.

Harvesting

In the sandalwood, sapwood and heartwood are well demarcated.
