BIOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

It grows rapidly, it produces excellent quality wood and huge amounts of oxygen!


The Oxytree has unique properties:

  • It grows extremely rapidly. It reaches a height of 16 m and a trunk diameter of 35 cm in its 6th year of growth.
  • Thanks to its huge leaves, it produces much more oxygen than any other deciduous tree!
  • Its straight, cylindrical trunk has no knots on it.
  • It regenerates from its stump, i.e. it re-grows four to five times after the first harvest.
  • Its tap roots reach down into 9 m deep and absorb nutrients from there so other plants can easily co-exist with it. Thanks to its deep roots, it doesn’t exploit the upper layers of soil, which are important for other plants.
  • Insects and worms don’t like it.
  • The tree is non-invasive as it can only be propagated in a laboratory. Thus, it does not endanger local ecosystems

The OXYTREE re-grows: this is the second year after extraction!

This is how it re-grows after being cut down.

The trunk girth of a 3-year-old OXYTREE is between 80 and 85 cm!

The leaf diameter of an OXYTREE is between 25 and 45 cm!

The leaf diameter of an Oxytree is between 25 and 45 cm!

The Oxytree is very resistant:

  • It is able to grow even in an area with only 500 mm of rainfall a year (however, it needs further irrigation in summer).
  • It is tolerant of extreme weather conditions (from −25 °C to +45 °C).
  • It can take root even in soils of poor quality (e.g. in sandy soil).
  • It is not very sensitive to soil pH: it can tolerate ranges of 5 to 8.9

The Oxytree’s biological properties

  • It was developed by crossing the Paulownia elongata and Paulownia fortunei species in a laboratory,
  • It can be propagated by micropropagation,
  • It is a rapidly growing deciduous tree,
  • It easily adapts to various weather conditions (from −25 °C to +45 °C) and soil conditions (it needs 800 mm rainfall a year),
  • Its huge leaves are 25-45 cm in width, its crown can easily reach 10 m in diameter, so it is inadvisable to plant it next to walls, buildings, water transmission pipelines and power cables or wires,
  • Its tap roots can reach down into 9 m deep, thus it can absorb nutrients and water from deeper layers of soil,
  • It blossoms once a year and its fruits have the shape of an egg (about 3-5 cm),
  • It is non-invasive as it can only be propagated in a laboratory. Thus, it does not endanger local ecosystems,
  • It helps to stabilise sandy and aeolian soils, as well as areas at high risk of landslides.
