Paulownia as a productive tree

Your Rating:

Paulownia is a medium tall large-leafed fast-growing deciduous tree from China. The trees are mainly grown for timber, but are also used for fodder, shade, crop protection, prevention of land degradation, as a fast-growing landscape tree, and for carbon sequestration. The trees withstand a wide range of temperatures but need reliable rainfall or irrigation in the growing season. 
Paulownia was planted at ICIMOD Knowledge Park at Godavari,  to determine whether it would grow in the Himalayan mid-hills and the optimum conditions. It has proven highly successful, with almost 20 m of growth in ten years from saplings and is recommended for growing for soft timber.
