Materials of the Danina Natural Timber CasketPaulownia wood is harvested from the Paulownia tree, which is also known as the Empress tree or Princess tree. The Paulownia tree originates from Asia but is now widely grown in many parts of the world, including here in Australia. Paulownia timber is recognised for its light weight due to its low density, and is also known for its high strength-to-weight ratio, which makes it very suitable timber in constructing coffins and caskets. The fast growth of the Paulownia tree also makes it an attractive source of timber for sustainable forestry practices, as it can be harvested in just a few years, compared to other hardwood trees that may take several decades to mature. In addition to its physical properties, Paulownia timber is also has a unique and clean natural wood grain appearance. The wood is a light, pale and creamy timber with a fine, even grain making it a beautiful piece of timber to use for coffins and caskets. It is also relatively easy to work with, due to its softness and does not have the issues of knots and other defects that pine or other hardwood timbers have.
