    Description

    Santalum paniculatum trade after more than a century was revived by the author in 1988. Revival of the trade has called attention to this resource, and the focus is now on management of this resource. A discussion about recent sandalwood logging and marketing activities in Hawai'i is presented. The author also points out various anomalies that may be related to habitat and land use variations. The obligatory parasitic nature of this species is questioned and the coppicing tendency is confirmed. Criteria are suggested concerning the harvesting and sales that minimize fragmentation of forest areas. The concept of establishing a sandalwood research center and the cultivation of sandalwood in Hawai'i is presented.
