Formation of agarwood occurs in the trunk and roots of trees that have been infected by a parasitc mould, Phialophora parasitica, a dematiaceous (dark-walled) fungus. As a response, the tree produces a resin high in volatile organic compounds that aids in suppressing or retarding fungal growth. While the unaffected wood of the tree is relatively light in colour, the resin dramatically increases the mass and density of the affected wood, changing its colour from a pale beige to dark brown or black. In natural forest only 7 % of the trees are infected by the fungus. High quality resin comes from a tree's natural immune response to a fungal attack. It is commonly known as agarwood #1 (first quality). (Sources: wikipedia)
