West Australian sandalwood producer TFS Corporation has sent its first shipment to China.

The processed wood, which sold for $US2.25 million ($A2.96 million), departed Fremantle on Friday.

Managing director Frank Wilson says the sale is a major milestone as it means TFS is supplying wood and oil products to all the major markets in the world, including Europe, the US and India.

"We have forward sold the vast majority of our harvests over the next five years at attractive prices and this demonstrates the significant global demand for legal, sustainable and authentic Indian sandalwood," Mr Wilson said.
