Balsa wood grows naturally in the rain forests of Central and South America. Trees grow scattered throughout the forest, reaching maturity in a few years.
In 6 to 10 years, a tree can grow as high as 90 feet, with a diameter of more than three feet. This makes balsa wood a perfect natural product for people living near the rain forest, one that can be removed on a sustained yield basis, with very little harm to the forest.
