Driven by high demand, the wild resources of agarwood-producing trees have been greatly threatened. This fragrant product contains many aromatic substances and is obtained from the pathological conditions of the wood of living trees. The knowledge regarding the technology for inducing agarwood and its continuous formation in the tree is still limited. To conserve the wild Aquilaria spp. and to supply sustainable amount of agarwood, cultivation of Aquilaria trees in combination with induction through artificial technique is seen as the best approach.
