Characteristic of sandalwood germination is very slow and it is belong to slow growing tree spesies. The aim of this research was to test the effectiveness of boron on various concentrations and period of soaking to speed up the seed germination and to study the effect of combination treatment between boron and rice husk charcoal on the growth of sandalwood seedlings. The experimental design of research was factorial in Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The results of this research showed that the initial treatment of sandalwood seed in boron soaking on 400 ppm concentration could accelerate the sandalwood seed germination one weeks earlier with 42% germination percentage while control was 34.6%. The optimal Soaking of sandalwood seeds was 24 hours. Rice husk charcoal addition on 7.5% (w/w) in the growing medium and boron on 400 ppm concentration produced the best seedling quality index (SQI) of sandalwood seedling with the SQI value of 30 and 29 points, while the interaction of both got SQI at 26 points and 9 points for control.
