Description: Santalum lanceolatum, the commercial species of sandalwood harvested in Queensland, was worth $4.2 million in export earnings in 1988. The ecology of the species in natural forests is summarized, and information on seedling regeneration and coppice and root suckering strategies is provided. Stand characteristics and size class distribution in two different environments in northwest Queensland are provided. It is important to manage the resource for conservation. The harvesting guidelines, pricing criteria, and procedures are discussed along with information on heartwood recovery and moisture content of harvested sandalwood. Future research should be undertaken to monitor stand dynamics, growth rates, and the effects of land use practices on the distribution, growth, and dynamics of sandalwood in natural stands.
