Balsa Tree, Facts on the Balsa Trees

Here is some detailed information on the balsa tree.

Ochroma pyramidale, commonly known as balsa (also O. lagopus), is a species of flowering plant in the mallow family, Malvaceae. It is a large, fast-growing tree that can grow up to 30 m (100 ft) tall. Balsa trees are native from southern Brazil and Bolivia north to southern Mexico; however, Ecuador supplies 95 percent or more of commercial balsa[2]. In recent years, about 60 percent of the balsa has been plantation grown in densely packed patches of 50 to 100 trees per hectare (compared to about two to three per hectare in nature).

Trees are classified as hardwood because of the shape of their leaves, so balsa, with its large, broad leaves is classified as hardwood despite being very soft. It is the softest commercial hardwood. The trees are harvested after six to 10 years of growth. The name balsa comes from the Spanish word for "raft".

As it is low-density but high in strength, balsa is a very popular material to use when making light, stiff structures in model bridge tests and for the construction of model aircraft, as well as full-sized light wooden aeroplanes.
