Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): Exploitation of the diseased wood for the perfume industry has resulted in population declines exceeding 80% over recent years. There is a strong indication that the same losses are occurring in the rest of Indo-China. Other parts of the plant are also widely used: the roots for incense, cosmetics and medicines and the bark for fibre.
