Abstract The fast growing woody crops are a very important source for the generation of the bioenergetics biomass. Paulownia sp. Is a plant part of this group, and because of its fast growth, multiple values and high adaptability with climate conditions, is set recently in the centre of the intention. Paulownia is one of the fastest growing species in the world with low concentration of ash, sulphur and nitrogen and high calorific energy from its wood. It is considered as an energetic crop adequate for the production of the solid biocarburants and the bioethanol. The cultivation of the Paulownia because of the high absorption of CO 2 from the air, to support the fast growth of the biomass, is considered as an effective mean to soften the climacteric changes. The plant is also considered as suitable to improve the abandoned lands when its cultivation is concentrated to the biomass production. The genus of Paulownia (Scrophulariaceae) is autochthones species of China and East Asia and as such is not found naturally in Albania. To study the regionalization possibilities of this species in the Korça climacteric conditions, aiming its cultivation according the fast growth coppice system were planted in 2014 in Cangonj (Devoll) 300 seedlings of P. tomentosa in a distance of 1 x 1 m. during the year 2015 were planted other 400 seedlings prepared with seeds. This article deals with the preliminary data of the regionalization performance of this high energetic value crop.
