What does a balsa tree look like?



  1. 0 Votes

    Balsa trees grow in forest regions of Central and South America.  Growing rapidly, they can reach 60-90 feet tall and 12-45 inches in diameter in 6-10 years.  Oddly, Balsa trees shrink as they grow older.  If left unharvested, Balsa’s outside trunk will grow hard, while the inside rots, creating a very light wood.
