We are planning to plant 20 ha of trees in an area with favorable soils and climate for paulownia production. So this area has the best combination of growing conditions. The location is Kosovo in general. Topography and soil quality are two factors affecting the potential success of paulownia plantations. The development starts in the spring, when the soil temperature reaches 15-16oC. Intensive cultivation of Paulownia is optimal up to 700-800m and the optimal temperatures suitable for maximal growth are in the range of 24-33°C. Paulownia is highly adaptive species and grew well on many types of soils. Most appropriate and recommended are light, well drained and sandy soils with or without slopes. Most recommended are deep well drained soils with pH from 5.0 to 8.9. Avoid clay, recky and soaked soils. Soils that are consisted from over 25% of clay and porosity under 50% are not recommended for Paulownia. Paulownia does not tolerate salinity over 1 %. Young Paulownia plants develop well, when the soil depth is at least 1.5-2 meters. Soil and air humidity are very important for Paulownia grewing.

Soil and air humidity are very important for Paulownia grewing. Additional watering is necessary if the annual rainfall drop under 100mm per month. In comparison 10mm of rain delivers, 10lt of water. Insufficient watering slows the growth but does not kill the plant. For optimal growth during the first months of development is crucially important to water them with 201 per plant weekly. The quantity is good to be divided in two equal times and added by drip irrigation system. The establishment of drip irrigation is recommended technology when develop commercial plantation for Paulownia. Plantation is good to be planted at areas without streng winds reaching over 28km/h. When there are stronger winds at the place of planting stabilizing post has to be put during the first year of development until they form streng wooden stem. The speed of the wind is dangerous for the young plants over 45km/h and such areas have to be avoided. The calorific value is 3680 kilocalories, 2 kg of paulownia = 1 1 diesel.
We have made all the necessary analyses for the soil and the soil has all the necessary parameters for growing Paulownia trees.

Advantages: Obviously the main advantage of our company is that this kind of sapling is growing with more speed than the other types of seedlings and is fire-resistant. The cost for the cultivation of this sapling is small which makes satisfactory profit. The functionality of this tree is very large as it can be used in many industries and led to market growth is continuing. For the initial capital we thought it must be ensured a share of both foreign investors who have experience in this business, in this case investors are motivated and stimulated to invest in our project because of better conditions for business that we offer.

Risks: Since in our case we are always exposed to the weather conditions, we think that can be our permanent risk. Given the economic conditions in our country, and on the other side that our activity is costly think this risk. Fiscal policies like any other business, for our business are important and influential, in other words increasing the tax rate on income from the government, can affect the operation and implementation of the project. The economic crisis has gripped the world, and as a result people tend to spend less...

paulownia life

The genus Paulownia (in the family Scrophulariaceae) includes about nine highly productive species with valuable timber. They are native to southeastern China, where they have been cultivated for centuries. The species of Paulownia genus have C-4 type of photosynthesis and are placed among the fastest growing species in the world. They are foliage timber and evergreen in tropical areas.

The bark is smooth with branches in opposite direction. The trees form many large gramophone flowers with many small seeds that possess small skin wing and high tolerance to changing environmental conditions. Paulownia is interesting with its fast growth, high quality timber, beautiful flowers and large leaves. All the species of Paulownia genus are fast growing but the most attractive for commercial use are hybrids among these species that maintain different valuable characteristics.

The high drought resistance, unpretentiousness towards the soil composition and the broad range of temperatures for growing (from -20 to +40°C) makes the Paulownia species highly sought at the world market. The timber of Paulownia is light and at the same time exceptionally strong, which is the ideal combination for the cases where such ratio matters. The timber easily allows all types of treatment. It is light in color and it stains well with all varieties of colors. It is used for furniture, veneer, rafts and panels, toys and as the raw material for paper, biofuels etc. The high ratio of strength/weight makes the Paulownia timber irreplaceable in shipbuilding, aviation, for surfboards, caravans etc.

The Paulownia timber can be air-dried fast (without kilns), and it retains little moisture (up to 10-12%). It is exceptionally stable, withstands warping, breakages and deformations. The timber is with fine structure and silky smooth surface, without blemishes (knots). lt is waterresistant and with amazing resonance which makes it highly valued and sought for musical instruments. It is also very important that these species resist illnesses, insects and pests which considerably reduce the risks of commercial growing.

The Paulownia timber can The use of Paulownia in Japan dates back to 200 AD. In China, the Paulownia has been grown for centuries and its timber was used for furniture, construction components, toys, musical instruments, boxes, packing, etc. Paulownia usually begins to produce seed 'after 8 or 10 years. There are nearly 3 million seeds per pound. Under favorable conditions a large tree may produce as many as 20 million seeds in one year.
