Intrduction to growing Paulownia in New Zealand

Updated: Feb 3, 2023

Paulownia timber is highly valued in New Zealand for a number of uses, but mainly for making surfboards and other water craft.

It's main advantage is it's light weight, excellent strength to weight ratio, and it's ease of use.


Paulownia trees are deciduous, and have a vigorous summer growth season, growing to 6 metres tall in one year in optimum conditions
