Australian Paulownia is descended from native Asia and is now an Australian Plantation timber, grown in four states. Paulownia is light in weight and pale blonde in colour with its own character grain but approximately the same strength as Cedar. It has a magic feel like a firm balsa wood. It is very light and can be painted or stained to resemble any timber.
It is easily limed and when painted does not experience oily seepage. Because Paulownia resembles Western Red Cedar in weight and strength it is increasingly being used by surfboard makers.
Recent tests have proven that our Australian Grown Paulownia is extremely stable and termite resistant. The timber is gathering rave reviews worldwide. Most importantly, rainforests are not being ravaged to harvest Australian Grown Paulownia.
