    Mega Flora Tree, a hybrid-cross, high-density, short-rotation tree that has been in development for many years. The Mega flora Tree can be harvested in as little as two years, for biomass fuel, making it ideal for reforestation. It grows to it’s mature height of 55 to 65 feet in only six to seven years, with the first limbs beginning at 35 feet, thus producing excellent knot free lumber
    The Mega Flora combines the best qualities of two other trees, through a root grafting system that involves a patented DNA transfer process. Its parents are the fast-growing Paulownias tree and a North American hardwood tree. It is not a genetically modified organism.
    In addition to its fast growing speed and dense, woody trunk, the Mega flora tree features a large leaf volume, which increases its CO2 uptake. My research suggests that CO2 uptake is fastest in young, fast-growing trees, and this is certainly one of them. As I understand it, the carbon in the CO2 is essentially being used to make the fibber of the tree -- the hard "wood" that we would harvest and burn -- or, in this case, chip, render, and distil into a bio fuel.
    As if all this wasn't enough, the Mega Flora is also extremely hardy. Its growing tests were conducted in the Pyrenees Mountains of Spain, where it was fertilized with municipal sewage sludge. It is said to withstand levels of salinity and boron in soils and water that kill other plants and trees.
    Additionally, its ultra-fast growing cycle "hyper-accumulates" these contaminants, which are of course removed during the conversion to bio fuel, leaving the soil cleaner than it began.
    So, let's recap:
    We have a tree which
    - is non-GMO
    - is non-invasive (produces no seeds or fruit)
    - can be harvested at full maturity within 3 years
    - re-grows from its own stump to full maturity in another 3 years
    - has huge leaves for carbon sequestration
    - can survive in land and on water where nothing else will grow
    - actually leaves the soil and water cleaner when it is finished
    - can survive on only 300 gallons of water per year from all sources
    Exceptional Growth Rate:
    2 Year Height up to 32 feet
    =7 year Height up to 60 feet
    =7 year DBH 22-28 inches
    knot free=to first limb at 7 years

    The Mega flora Tree offers many desirable characteristics and creates an unmatched set
    of financial and ecological benefits for both the grower and the community.

    Wood characteristics
    •Hard Wood Timber
    •Easy to Work and Finish
    •Straight Grained
    •Resembles Ash in Color & Grain
    •Takes Stain Well
    •Light Weight yet Strong
    •No Kiln Drying Needed
    Benefits•Re grows from Stump of Harvested Tree
    (Reforestation without replanting)
    •Excellent Phytoremediation Characteristics
    (incl. Chemicals, Metals and Radiation)
    •Fast Growth means More Profits and Jobs
    •Non-Invasive (bonded)
    •Grows in Wide Range of Climates
    •Ideal for Intercropping
    •Soil Stabilization
    •Riparian Buffers
    •Reduces Global Warming
    All of this means that the Mega folia Tree will not only produce high income from product sales, but will generate eco-friendly sustainable development in areas where it is planted.

    I tried this in my emu farm, as a fencing trees. I planted two types of trees:

    1. Paulownia or MegaFlora trees
    2. Singapore Cherry (Bot.name: Muntingia calabura)

    Singapore cherries were grown excellently in short period of time, and it gives abundant shade for my emu breeders, whereas none of the Paulownia survived. These Paulownia's were heavily infected by pests, and leaves started curling inwards, turns black, and falls. Soon, the stems were also dead.

    I bought the Paulownina at Rs.5/- per sapling. You need 4000 sapling per acre.

    A fast-growing plant of Chinese origin, Paulownia, is set to replace other wood being used for timber, like poplar and eucalyptus, by projecting itself as a wood that can be used for furniture purposes. Growers are likely to get a much higher remuneration than from it than through other forestry means.
    Though the plant has been grown on an experimental basis by only a few progressive farmers since the past two years, it is only from this year that farmers of the district, as well as adjoining ones, have gone in for its mass plantation.
    Having been super-cloned for Indian conditions by the Tatas, the plant is slowly making its presence felt in Punjab. Pavittar Singh, a farmer of Nurmahal, says he got four plants of Paulownia around two years back to see their growth cycle and capability to adjust to Indian conditions. Recently he went in for more cultivation of the plant as he felt its growth was faster than that of poplar.
    Another farmer, Harwinder Singh, has planted Paulownia in two acres of land on the Patiala-Sirhind road (Punjab) He says he is satisfied with the growth of the trees, which is more than one foot per month. He went for Paulownia plantation after getting details about the plant from the Internet and seeing how farmers of Australia had profited from.
    Mr Satinder Singh Harika, of Punjab, says the plant has been in existence in China for nearly 2000 years and has been used extensively for paper-making, wood products and furniture purposes. He says quality timber could be realised from the plant in five years, adding it could be grown on plains and mountainous regions up to a height of 2000 meters under Indian conditions. Mr Harika says Paulownia could attain a height of 16 to 18 feet in the first growing season. In the northern plains of the country, the growth starts with the onset of spring and continues till the beginning of winter. He says the tree yields nearly 30 to 35 cubic feet of quality, merchantable rough-sawn timber and can be harvested seven times.
    Literature on Paulownia, culled from the Internet, says it can become the foundation for ecologically sustainable communities. As the plants are fast-growing deciduous trees, they provide shade, valuable hardwood and create ideal microclimates for growing a wide variety of food crops. The plant makes an excellent agro-forestry tree that can be inter-cropped with wheat, maize, groundnut, soya bean, millet, gram, vegetables, tea and coffee.
    At present, sources say, the saplings are expensive, priced at around Rs 40 per piece, as their cultures are imitated from plant materials obtained from Australia. Later, it would be possible to distribute these plants on a large scale through tissue culture. Sources say so far more than 1.5 lakh tissue cultured plants have been transferred to the field in both northern and southern states.

    will this tree grow in tamil nadu south india. can it be inter-cropped in sandal plantation. will it be a good host for the sandal. I also want to know the spacing required and cost of cultivation.
