Balsa tree is the most lightweight wood in the world. It grows in the tropical forest of America; the weight is one-tenth over the same volume of others. It was therefore also given the name ‘Light wood’.
Balsa is one of the fastest growing trees in the world. The tree trunk is huge and tall, leaf like Phoenix tree, and it’s green all year round.
It has a wide range of application. Just to name a few, it can be produced into bottle’s cock; life saving items; electricity insulation and soundproof acoustics.
The balsa wood is also an ideal material for construction of aerospace and marine engineering.
This light tree is just right to reflect the unbearable lightness of being ‘The Tree’.
