Bruce and Bev Storer- a decade of growing, observing and learning about sandalwood
Been planting since: 2001 Species planted: Biodiverse sandalwood mix including a range of Acacia species. Most recent tree planting project: In October 2010 Bruce and Bev received funding through the Wheatbelt NRM Soil Conservation Incentives Program to plant 40,000 sandalwood hosts over 2.5 years. So far 16,000 hosts have been planted with another 6,000 to 8,000 to be planted in 2012. The sandalwood nuts will be planted in every second row 1 to 3 years after the hosts depending on host growth rate. So far 80 – 95 % of the hosts have survived and are doing well.
