RevoTropix Paulownia Million Trees Challenge is a “Gaining Greener Earth” initiative undertaken by Green Afforestation International Network Sdn Bhd (Gain-Green) to inspire Malaysian and overseas eco-warriors to sponsor and plant one million RevoTropix Paulownia trees across unused lands of Malaysia

 

Benefits of planting RevoTropix Paulownia trees:

  • Save more forest trees from logging by planting more valuable trees in unused lands
  • Save more wild life habitat by reducing clearing of nature forest
  • Offset CO2 emission
  • Better air quality
  • Reduction in heating and cooling costs
  • Shadier environment, greener earth
  • Reducing soil erosion

 

You are invited to become official member of RevoTropix Paulownia Million Tree Challenge warrior by sponsoring Paulownia tree. We need everyone to be part of this campaign. Every contribution will be counted and make a difference in creating a greener and healthier earth!

Be One in the Million! Accept the challenge today!

WHAT IS PAULOWNIA?

Introduction

Paulownia – also called the kiri tree, princess tree or empress tree is a fast growing, multipurpose hardwood tree (family Paulowniaceae, previously in the family Scrophylariaceae) comprised of nice species and a few natural hybrids that are native to China. The genus was named in honor of Queen Anna Pavlovna from The Netherlands (1795–1865), daughter of Tsar Paul I of Russia.

Paulownia species are found growing naturally and under cultivated conditions in several parts of the world including China, Japan and Southeast Asia, Europe, north and central America, and Australia.

Due to their rapid growth and value in the timber market, many Paulownia species are cultivated in several temperate zones worldwide.

History

For decades, Japanese craftsmen have utilized it as revered wood in ceremonial furniture, musical instruments, decorative moldings, laminated structural beams and shipping containers. Paulownia timber was exported from China to Japan to produce handicrafts such as kotos (harps) and tansa (wedding chests).

  • Very light

    - “Aluminium wood” -about 2/3 the weight of the lightest commercial wood.

    - The specific gravity of the Paulownia wood ranges from 0.23 to 0.30

  • Strong & Stable

    - Strong and will not split even when spikes are driven into it.

    - Does not split, warp and crack with rapid drying.

  • Moisture resistant

    - Water cannot penetrate easily from the outer surfaces to inner area

  • Low thermal conductivity

    - Excellent insulation properties, can be used as a material in construction where the insulator is required.

  • Dry rapidly

    - Strong and will not split even when spikes are driven into it.

    - Does not split, warp and crack with rapid drying.

  • Low energy conductivity

    - Produce a type of air conditioning effect when used as  building material.

    - It is a potential fire door material as well.

  • Easily worked

    - The wood is suitable for carving, wood-working, model airplane construction, peeling for veneer.

  • Aesthetic

    - The wood has an appealing grain pattern and is easily stained or painted.

  • Good sound conduction

    - Good resonance properties. Used to make sound boards of musical instruments.

  • FAST GROWTH

    Grows to maturity in 4-6 years.

  • REGENERATION ABILITY

    Can generate from a cut stump and

    grow into another mature tree again

    in 4 to 6 years. This can be repeated

    4 to 6 more times.

  • GROW WELL IN MALAYSIA CLIMATE

    18 ft height after 8 months

    More than 6’’ diameter in less than a year

  • CO2 ABSORPTION

    Absorb great amount of carbon

    dioxide during its grow cycle & reduce

    CO2 emission into the atmosphere,

    relieve global warming issue.

WHO WE ARE

AFFORESTATION BUSINESS

Deforestation is clearing Earth's forests on a massive scale, often resulting in critical damage to the quality of the land, loss of habitat for millions of species and driving climate change. The world’s rain forests could completely vanish in a hundred years at the current rate of deforestation.

 

One of the workable solutions is to carefully manage forest resources by eliminating clear-cutting to make sure that forest environments remain intact.

 

The cutting that does occur should be balanced by the planting of enough young trees to replace the older ones felled in any given forest.

 

Gain-Green capitalize on the unique characteristic of Paulownia tree which is known to absorb great amount of carbon dioxide compared with other species and aim to converge dual gains of yielding timber solutions while providing carbon sequestration.
