What is the agarwood ?
Agarwood trees are damaged by natural environmental factors such as windstorms, lightning strikes, insect pests, or human-induced damage, and resulting in infection by pathogens. The agarwood trees due to the resin secreted by the tree itself after infection. The tree produces a dark aromatic resin, called aloes or agar. It needs more
than hundreds or thousands of years to produce the resin embedded wood.
The agarwood trees are not like the sandalwood trees in India. When the sandalwood trees grow, the sandalwood trees naturally secrete the sandalwood oil. The elder sandalwood trees contain more sandalwood oil in the wood.
Therefore, we can understand that agarwood trees can only be valuable if they have the resin embedded in the woods.
