The Aquilaria genus (a member of the Thymelaeaceae) is renown for its fragrant non-wood product, the agarwood (or aloeswood, eaglewood). Due to high demand in many countries for its value, this infected wood is distilled into oil, further processed into perfumes, incenses, and feng shui decor/ display.
With its distinctive fragrance and usage in traditional medicine, local rituals, agarwood is a much-sought-after ingredient in many countries. The demand of agarwood has been surging for several decades. One of the challenges we are facing is the slow formation of agarwood because it takes years to form. In contrast, the trading volume is high and in nature, the supply of agarwood has been decreasing. To cope with this issue, man kind starts to cultivate Aquilaria genus and make agarwood out of it.
The resinous part of the infected or wounded Aquilaria tree is called agarwood, a valuable non-timber product for the production of high-end incenses, perfume and medicine. 100% pure agarwood oil contains many aromatic substances and is obtained from the pathological conditions of the wood of living trees.To conserve the wild Aquilaria and supply sustainable amount of agarwood,for this high demand cultivation of Aquilaria trees is the best approach which Grandawood has been doing for the past three generations.
