Naturally durable, light weight and beautiful
Paulownia is a tropical tree that is ideal for those looking to source a renewable, natural material for production. Fast-growing, it re-crops quickly, has a dense root structure to help stabilize soil and reduce erosion and grows well in fire-damaged forest zones. Its large, dense leaves rapidly create a rich floor loam after leaf drop.
Its light, straight structure and resistance to water or resin absorption makes it a favorite among airplane and boat builders. These characteristics make it an ecologically sound and material with ideal mechanical properties for the production of light weight, highly durable SUPs.
