Botanical Name: Paulownia tomentosa
Paulownia is extremely fast growing; up to 3m in one year when young. Some species of plantation Paulownia can be harvested for timber in as little as five years. Once the trees are harvested, they regenerate from their existing root systems, earning them the name of the Phoenix tree. As a forestry crop Paulownia are exacting in their requirements, performing well only in very well draining soil, with summer rainfall or availability of irrigation water.
