Is there anyone out there that has ever heard of paulownia? I have a friend who works w/ his dad and he has talked about using Paulownia for beehives. He isn't a beekeeper, but thought this may be good. It's supposed to be strong, rot and warp resistent, and it's very lite. (sounds as if it'd be perfect) He gave me a sample to check out. Here's a link to a site that I found. . . http://www.worldpaulownia.com/ Does anyone have any thoughts?
