Agarwood is the resinous heartwood that grows inside Aquilaria trees. Plantations International has Aquilaria tree plantations in Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia, and is the global market leader in Agarwood cultivation and sales.
Due to overwhelming demand and extremely limited supply, Agarwood is by far the most valuable and expensive wood in the world. When Agarwood chips are ground and distilled into oil, Agarwood oil, or “Oud Oil” as it is officially known, is the key ingredient in some most luxurious and expensive fragrances in the world.
Top fragrance houses such as Chanel, Calvin Klein and Versace to name a few, have all incorporated Oud Oil within their premium fragrance lines. Now, with over a 1,000 new fragrances launched each year, the global fragrance market has reached a current market valuation of over USD 33 billion and growing!
Please Watch The Below Video, The video will give you an in-depth understanding of what Agarwood and the Oud Oil industry is and its current market demand. You will see one tree in Thailand that is worth over USD 20 million!
Q: Why Should you add Managed Forestry to Your Portfolio?
Simply put, unlike other traditional asset classes such as stocks, bonds or fixed bank deposits, forestry is completely uncorrelated to the financial markets, We have all seen the extreme market volatility caused by the Covid-19 virus, forcing most governments to lower bank interest rates, some as low as 0%.
Some countries such as Switzerland, for example, have negative interest rates where depositors are actually paying for the privilege to have the banks hold their savings. Forestry as an asset class is mostly immune to this type of extreme volatility and market crashes.
As a matter of fact, managed forestry is considered to be one of the world’s most stable and most consistently reliable asset classes. Trees do not worry about political changes or downturns in the markets and industry sectors. Trees just grow and grow, and Plantations International has the perfect way to make this work for you. Not only do we offer you complete risk mitigation via our guaranteed tree replacement policy. Your harvest returns are also underpinned by a contractually guaranteed minimum sales price and by a constantly increasing and demanding market.

Q: Why does Plantations International offer plantation ownership opportunities to third parties and not just do it all themselves?

We currently only offer one-third of our Agarwood trees in our third-party plantation ownership program, thus keeping two-thirds of our Agarwood trees for our own purposes.
Q: Can I transfer or sell my trees to a third party?
Yes, your trees are your exclusive private property, you may sell them or transfer them to anyone at any time without restrictions. Your trees are part of your estate and can be passed on to whoever you choose, just like your home.
