Ecuador produces more balsa and balsa products than any other country in the world.
The balsa tree is an extremely fast-growing species, reaching a height of 30-35 m and a diameter of more than 60 cm. Our balsa is primarily harvested from plantation-grown trees. Ecuador's tropical climate provides the best possible conditions for this type of agriculture. Before the wood can be processed, it must be treated for several days in a drying kiln, where the moisture content is reduced to about 8-12%. Once sawed and planed it is sorted according to quality.
Balsa wood is an organic raw material which is naturally subject to variations in its characteristics. Only carefully selected timber passes the quality control.
