Paulownia Plantations by Seed

When using high quality mother trees, we have found our Paulownia seed to be a very easy and practical method to obtain healthy, high quality seedlings at a minimal start up cost. (Seed do not carry any pathogens and can be shipped across states and countries.)

Seed germinate easily in 5 to 7 days and can be planted in 8 to 12 weeks after being sown. For beginners, our indoor method minimizes problems. However, germination can be started outdoors as well. *More Information

Paulownia Plantations by Root Cuttings

Cuttings by-pass the need of a greenhouse and can be directly planted into the field. Unlike seed, cuttings are an old cloning method for reproducing the same genetic mother tree. When you have done your research and need a particular paulownia tree, its a proven Chinese method they have use for centuries. *More Information
