Is there a market for Paulownia trees?

Thanks to the special characteristics of the tree species, Paulownia wood is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to tropical woods. This is due to its low weight, low flammability and its very high bending strength and static stability. The demand for this wood is increasing not only in the sports industry, but also in the production of musical instruments and furniture.

The growth of the trees also means that the amount of wood is constantly increasing. A mass increase of 10-15% per year can be expected.
