    Description

    S. macgregorii) grows between 100 and 1500 m and is not evenly distributed throughout the country. It grows only around the central province where savannahs are found. Most of this original S. macgregorii stand was harvested during 1890-1910 and again in 1933. The government of Papua New Guinea does not have a stand of sandalwood. Any remains of S. macgregorii are owned and harvested by the landowners. Landowners then sell the graded logs to agents in Port Moresby, who in turn sell them to buyers in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and Japan. Studies including phenology, silviculture, and growth of S. macgregorii are yet to be established.
