Step 6 - Industry innovation

Innovation and market development will be essential for the long-term sustainability of the native sandalwood industry. The industry’s base will be expanded progressively as plantations come on stream, providing opportunities to grow its market. 


  • The Forest Products Commission will establish an innovation fund to promote new technologies and products that bring greater value to the industry. 
  • A marketing committee will be established to develop industry-wide initiatives focused on promoting Western Australian sandalwood as a high-value resource. 
  • Branding programs will be developed with industry to establish the identity of Western Australian sandalwood.
