Red Sandalwood Powder Morphology

Red sandalwood or Raktachandan tree is home to the Ghat Mountains in the southern region of South India. It is known for its rich red, non-aromatic wood across the world. Although the woods are quite heavy, the plant itself only grows up to 5-8 meters. The tree demands sufficient light when growing up. It grows pretty fast when young and reaches a height of 5 meters in three years, even if the soil conditions are not the absolute best. It cannot, however, tolerate temperatures of -10 C and can be killed by frost.

The leaves of the red sandalwood plant are alternate with three leaflets. They are usually 3-9 cm long. The flowers come in short racemes. Lastly, the fruit pod is 6-9 cm long and it contains one or two seeds.
