We are located in East Tennessee where Paulownia tomentosa has been found naturally for over 150 years.
Our knowledge of paulownia comes from several sources; natural growth in the wild, research of the literate, conversing with others, and attending paulownia meetings. We take that information and apply it to our own test plots. We have been doing this for over 24 years.
We are located in Cocke County, just off of HWY 321, midway between Newport and Greeneville, Tennessee. By far, the best method to contact us is by email: DavidSutton@paulowniaseed.com . However, if you wish to use voice phone (423) 278-8891, that works also. With voice, most likely, you will be asked to leave a message, and I will return your call. Either of these two methods will usually get a quick response. If you choose to go postal or fax (423) 623-5465, my response may not be so quick, but I response to all contacts.
