a few trees of Paulownia are in Delhi also....the tree was imported
(from Australia probably) a few years back by forest department for
use as a timber tree but the tree just took the conditions to be very
favourable and grew very fast and thus depriving the wood of its
strength....hence a useless tree...

Paulownias are seen in plenty in U.S A also.

Dear Pinki ji,
The pendulum has since swung back and now Paulownia is considered a good candidate for biomass production. Here is a link to an article which appeared in the Hindu.


Cheers,
Mohan
