If you intend to cultivate any of the two trees normally referred as Sandal/Sandal Wood (Commonly referred Sandalwood/Chandanam: White Sandalwood: Santalum album and Red Sandalwood/Red Sanders/Raktha Chandanam: Pterocarpus santalinus), there are legal issues to be understood about these trees, regarding cultivation and sale. And then, there are cultivation issues as these are forest trees and they need a kind of forest atmosphere for proper growth. And further, please understand that Santalum album is a root parasite and require other host trees around for its proper growth, and there are certain trees that can help it grow faster too. So, a plantation of Santalum album should also take into account cost for planting these host trees.

For Black soil you might need Panchakavyam and Jeevamirtham (organic farming) to their growth.
