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.

Im making fairy houses for my grandkids, and this balsa wood makes perfect tiny window frames! Cuts easily with an exacto knife and is much less expensive than pre made fairy window frames that you can purchase ready made! And I csn make them ezactly the size and shape that i want.

Pricey but good quality
from Elgin, IL
Out of several hundred pieces ordered, only o e was even slightly damaged, and it was a 1/16th x 1/16th x 36 inch long piece, so it is understandable one corner would be knicked . Wrapping the bundles might be better in a sticker tho, the rubber bands sometimes leave an imprint on the side of too tight. Overall great quality, just a little pricey since it's going through two distributors.
