There is a gorgeous double row of mature Paulownia at Longwood Gardens
in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.  They are stunning in flower, but
each year the dead or weak limbs must be carefully pruned away.  The
wood is so soft and brittle that the staff live in fear that a good
wind will bring a big limb down on some poor, unsuspecting guest.
