Traditional Inoculation had been introduced a few decades ago. The methods being use are by physically damaging the tree with nails, hammer, blades, drilling hole or fire damage. Some even apply toxic on the skin of the tree to stimulate the tree. However, by using such methods, the yield is low and the quality is mostly of the lower grade or inferior. Such resin have plain fragrant and has very small percentage of essential oil.
