If you ever happen to stumble upon one of these five crazy-expensive trees, make sure you don’t damage them or you might find yourself with a massive bill!

  • Sandalwood-- $20,000 per tree. Sandalwood is valued not only for its luxurious scent, but also because the tree produces a special kind of oil that’s frequently used in perfumes and ancient medicine. This oil production allows sandalwood to hold its signature smell for years to come…making the wood incredibly valuable.
  • African Blackwood-- $10,000 per kilogram. One of the most expensive types of wood in the world comes from the endangered African Blackwood tree. Found only in the driest parts of Africa, this wood is highly valued because it’s often made into pricy high-end musical instruments.
  • Agar Wood-- $10,000 per kilogram. A dark heartwood tree native to Myanmar, Agar produces a natural scent and oil that are often incorporated into cologne and perfume. Demand for the Agar scent is growing, making it one of the most expensive trees in the world.
  • Bocote-- $30 per board. An exotic wood native to Mexico and South America, the Bocote tree is prized thanks to the unique patterns produced when the tree is cut into boards. If you’re looking for a piece of furniture made from Bocote wood, you’d better be ready to pay—desks and tables made from this prized tree often cost up to $20,000!
  • Pink Ivory-- $8 per board. Native to Zimbabwe and South Africa, Pink Ivory is valued for its gorgeous, natural pink-red color. The wood is often used for ancient medicinal purposes, as well as the production of billiard cues and knife handles.

I had a 60+ ft Pine in my backyard that was inching its way toward my house so I called Tarzan Tree Service. He gave me a reasonable estimate with the time it would take them to bring it down. They showed up at my house early and did not stop working until everything was down and packed away. Tarzan Tree was professional, kept safety first, and cleaned everything up as if nothing had happened. I would recommend them for any tree service hands down. Great Service!!!
