Description

Gospel House Handicraft use Albizia wood for this toy. This has many sustainable benefits as Albizia falcataria is one of the fastest-growing trees in the world. It is a species of wood used largely for fuel in the humid tropics.

The texture quality of Albizia wood has an attractive short and strait grained appearance and when sealed has a smooth satin finish with an amber hue. It is an extremely light but tough wood making it a perfect candidate for children toys.

Growth records of this miracle tree on good soil and high rainfall are as much as 7m in height in little more than a year, 13-18m in 3 years, 21m in 4 years and 30m in 9-10 years. Then growth slows to a maximum of 45m and short life of about 25 years.

This pioneer, light-requiring tree produces abundant seeds in lightweight pods blown by winds. It spreads in to clearings and has become established in abandoned sugar cane fields in Hawaii and the tea plantations in Sri Lanka where it is used as a natural wind breaker by tea farmers. This makes it a great natural and sustainable resource in Sri Lanka that can help boost the national economy.
