    Hello !

    Never heard of agarwood grown in Japan, Mongolia and Korea.

    You have also even if it's very close to Malay Sarawak, Brunei agarwood.

    Hi Jimmie

    Yes there are a family of trees in South & Central American that produce agarwood much like the Aquilaria family of trees.

    Burseraceae: Trees in the Burseraceae family that can form agarwood mainly grow in central South America.

    Lauraceae: Trees in the Lauraceae family that can form agarwood mainly grow in central South America.

    Euphorbiaceae: Trees in the Euphorbiaceae family that can form agarwood are mainly distributed in the tropics.

    Are you speaking about fragrant wood, resins and exudates in general, or actual agarwood with its peculiar molecules when distilled such as agarospirol and jinkoh-eremol, among others? As far as I know, agarwood is only produced by two genera in Thymelaeaceae. Burseraceae is the frankincense family and it is well-represented in the Americas. The American plants in this family are responsible for the classic copal of Mesoamerica, palo santo of South America, the elephant tree of Arizona and many fragrant and resinous trees of the Caribbean islands, South Florida and American tropics. The laurel family also produces resins and fragrant plants. As for the last family you mentioned, I am not too certain about its fragrant members. This would be a first read for me if true agarwood was produced by these families.

    Mr Claus I have to agree with you, these are trees forming resins related to frankincense and camphor. From my brief reading it doesn't look like they form agarwood style resin.
    Unless Alexander can expound further...

    Hum looks like that article is suffering from some meaning changes via translation.
    Fragrant wood do come from the species mentioned but they are not agarwood.
    It also states that agarwood takes hundreds of year to form- clearly nonesense

    Could a Poll of this thread be made, so that maybe vendors would know what we are waiting for the most?
    I wanted to add a Poll to the thread but the possible Poll answers are not enough.

    Aromatic Plants Cultivation, Processing And Uses by H. Panda will expand on the subject. There are various other books that also speak about these other family of trees that have hundreds of genre with a few that produce agarwood.

    I'm sorry, I checked this book out on Google and found nothing to indicate that there are plants in the families that you named that actually produce agarwood. I specifically didn't see anything about it being produced in South America. If you were mistaken about it, that's certainly fine. We all do make mistakes. The book is certainly a gem but a bit dated, since it doesn't seem to account for new data in agarwood and sandalwood cultivation. If anyone else is aware of agarwood being produced by genera of plants outside of Aquilaria and Gyrinops, please chime in, because I am certainly interested. I would think that if this were so, the companies involved in this trade of this precious commodity would have exploited these sources by now and we nerds would know of it. Not entirely impossible, like anything. A company named Evolva is synthesizing beta-santalol from yeast, but that is different from other plants producing agarwood.
