It is always a question which species produces good and high quality agarwood that international market is looking for?
From the eight native species that we have, Aquilaria malaccensis is highly recommended by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) for commercial propagation.
Sourcing of planting materials for this species is through importation, although the species is existing in our forest, you are prohibited from collecting seeds and wildlings. and there is no Nursery right now with DENR authorization to distribute the specimen.
Nurseries dealing with the distribution must have a Wildlife Culture Permit from the Regional Office of DENR.
