Balsa Wood (sawn timber, small sheets, battens)

Balsa wood is the lightest commercial timber in the world - it weighs less than cork. Our balsa wood is cultivated on plantations in tropical South America. The balsa tree reaches a diameter of approximately 50cm after 6-12 years and it is then fit for felling. We import balsa wood in bundles of around 1/3 to 1/2m³. The balsa wood bundles are strapped and protected at the edges.

We have had sawn balsa from Papua New Guinea in stock since early 2016. This is a beautiful, bright timber of the highest quality which is also very light. The bundles are classified as follows:

S = super light
I = light (60-100kg/m³)
II = normal (100-150kg/m³) bundles
