Paulownia - the ecological and economical shutter of choice

Paulownia is sourced from sustainable plantations and is a very fast growing tree which can be harvested every 7 or so years. It is able to regenerate from the existing roots which are left undamaged and this regrowth can occur many times. This makes it the most ecologically sound material to make shutters from, it is 100% FSC certified of course.
