The theme of the conference was “Mid-Atlantic Paulownia Timber, Production and Alternative Uses”.
The event began on the 21 April with sharing sessions with Paulownia expertise. The event was then followed by a field study to 2 Paulownia plantations and nursery. The visit allowed a successful and fulfilling sharing on Paulownia plantation and harvest issues. The visit also provided us the opportunity to share with all the participants on Gain Green initiative, the “RevoTropix Paulownia Million Tree Challenge”. Several t-shirts were also distributed among the participants and the Paulownia consultants.
American Paulownia Association was established in 1991. The members include Paulownia consultants, wood buyers & brokers, nurseries, timber growers, lumber and products providers. The association was formed in order to promote Paulownia as the forest crop in the United States (US).
