    Gaharu factory ready to operate

    THE agarwood (gaharu) processing factory in Kampung Bengkurong is ready to operate as Brunei aims to become a regional hub for the production and export of the world’s most expensive wood.

    Hj Mohd Ali Hj Dollah, managing director of Gaharu Berjaya Resources, yesterday announced that the construction of his agarwood processing factory has been completed. The local firm is preparing to cut down millions of wild trees.

     “The completed factory is capable of carrying out all the work of processing the agarwood trees that will be cut down soon,” he said during a tree plantin g ceremony at the Jefri Bolkiah Mosque in Kg Batong.

    Gaharu Berjaya Resources currently owns 87,000 agarwood trees planted in the country by local growers, in addition to an estimated 8.6 million agarwood trees planted across the island of Borneo.

    As part of its diversification efforts, the managing director said Brunei could be the biggest agarwood collection centre in Southeast Asia by fulfilling the growing market demand of importers abroad.

    “The worldwide demand for agarwood over the past 30 years has exceeded its supply, which is still short by 80 per cent. Agarwood’s price continues to increase from year to year up to the point where it is now more expensive than gold,” he said.

    Demand for the precious wood mostly comes from countries such as Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Taiwan, Japan, Europe and the United States.

    Hj Mohd Ali explained that agarwood, which forms in Aquilaria trees native to Southeast Asia, produces fragrant resin and oils that are used not only for the manufacturing perfume, but also in medicine and other products such as health supplements, green tea, cosmetics, prayer mats and beads.

    Researchers have found 17 species of agarwood across the region including six species that have been identified in the Sultanate.

    “By implementing new technology, we can harvest agarwood within a period of just five to seven years using natural methods, whereas previously the process would usually take several decades,” said the managing director.

    He also called on the public to protect agarwood from unlicensed planting and poaching, an offence punishable by a $500,000 fine, five year imprisonment or both under the Wild Flora and Fauna Order.

     “We have to continuously protect these trees as, over the last 80 years, a portion of wild agarwood trees found in a forest reserve in our country has been frequently stolen by irresponsible parties.

    By protecting these agarwood trees, we can maintain its existence for generations to come,” he said.

    During the tree planting ceremony yesterday, Gaharu Berjaya Resources donated 15 agarwood tree saplings to the Jefri Bolkiah Mosque.

    The saplings were planted around the mosque by Hj Mohd Ali together with mosque executive committee member Dato Paduka Hj Ishak Hj Abdullah, Kg Batong village head Hj Saban Lamat as well as imams Ruzaimi Hj Bunal and Hj Asmat Hj Tuah.

    Hj Mohd Ali said the donation intended to raise public awareness and understanding about agarwood trees with regards to its identification, protection, maintenance and products.

    “With this donation, we hope the public will realise the importance of protecting and maintaining agarwood species as well as planting more agarwood trees to ensure its existence for future generations,” he said.

    He also hoped the community can generate income by planting agarwood trees whilst enhancing the country's "greenery and image".

    Looking to supply 60% of world's demand

    BRUNEI aims to supply 60 per cent of the gaharu (sandalwood) global demand to become its biggest producer, with local company Gaharu Berjaya Resources (GaharuBrunei) targetting to plant and harvest one million trees over seven years.

    In an interview with The Brunei Times on the sidelines of a handover of gaharu trees to the Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (Unissa) yesterday, Hj Mohamad Ali Hj Dollah, GaharuBrunei managing director, said that the local company is actively promoting the commercialisation of the tree in all four districts of the Sultanate.

    The tree's resin is used to manufacture oils, lotions or soaps. Young gaharu leaves can also be collected after a year and a half and turned to green tea . The product enjoys high demand in the Middle East, Taiwan and Japan.

    "If our neighbour, Singapore, can gain US$1.2 billion a year (from this) despite the fact that they obtained the raw materials from outside and with the limited land, GaharuBrunei (has) the mission and vision to improve and increase the standard gaharu production in Brunei and South East Asia," Hj Mohamad Ali said.

    The country' s land is suitable for planting gaharu trees, and the company has already planted 9,500 trees since February, he said.

    However, "we have not been able to cater (to) all the demands".

    "From 50 years ago, Asean countries can only supply 15 per cent of the total demand. (This is because) we do not have the product," said Hj Mohamad Ali.

    He said that GaharuBrunei has been researching on the potential of the species for five years.

    "In the past, we had to wait 50 to 80 years to reap the products but with current technology we can produce a good income in five to seven years."

    According to the elders, gaharu trees have been a major source of income in Brunei before the Sultanate's oil and gas industry was developed, the GaharuBrunei executive said.

    He added that he hoped Bruneians would start planting the tree around their houses as well as in abandoned private lands.

    The purchasing price of One tree costs about $500 to $800, whereas the seedlings are priced at $15 each.

    As gaharu trees are endangered species and protected by the government, Hj Mohamad Ali said the company is liaising with Forestry Department and the Department of Agriculture and Agrifood, under the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources, with regard to designated plantation areas.

    "They gave us the opportunity to diversify the economy through commercialising gaharu trees at the areas provided. We are not going to touch the trees in our forest reserves," he said, adding that the company would plant more trees in the areas every three years to ensure a continuous supply.

    The local company has also established subsidiary companies in Malaysia and Indonesia.

    "What we are doing in Brunei, we will also be doing in Malaysia and Indonesia. (This is) So that the supply of the gaharu will not be limited," he said.

    He further explained that when people buy the seedlings, the company would provide them with the maintenance and care services for the trees, which will be harvested after seven years.

    So far, GaharuBrunei has contributed seedlings to three mosques in Kg Bunut, Salambigar and Subok. The company has also distributed seedlings for Pusat Ehsan and Hadfa recreational park in Kg Rimba. The next distribution activity will be at Universiti Brunei Darussalam in January 2011.
