Our life is dependent upon trees. There is a long association of man and trees. Since the hoary past man and trees have been the two major creations of Nature. In his prehistoric days man turned to trees and plants to collect the things vitally necessary for his existence. Since that time man and trees have been interdependent, though man is more indebted to trees. Amongst the variety of flora available on the planet, “Sandalwood” are one of the most costly as well as less available trees. They are useful in medical sciences and cosmetics. From the past few years, we are finding that the newspapers and news channels are frequently filled with news regarding the smuggling activities. Since they are costly, smugglers allegedly cut down many of these trees and transport them to their factories for commercial purposes. Anti-smuggling system is a measure that has been taken to stop these smuggling activities using GSM module and three type of sensors.
