It is lazy, greedy and stupid to cut down old trees in a jungle when there are trees that can be grown to full height in 10 years in temperate climates providing prime timber. Paulownia Elongata can save our forests if only people knew about it. Plant one Paulownia tree today, and you will have about ton of fire resistant, rot-free, fine-grained timber in 8 years!
