balsa at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Tree (Ochroma pyramidale, or O. lagopus) of the bombax family (Bombacaceae), native to tropical S. America and noted for its extremely light wood, which resembles clear white pine or basswood. Because of its buoyancy (about twice that of cork), balsa is well adapted for making floats for lifelines and life preservers. Its resiliency makes it an excellent shock-absorbing packing material. Its insulating properties make it a good lining material for incubators, refrigerators, and cold-storage rooms. Because it combines lightness and high insulating power, it is a valuable construction material for transportation containers for solidified carbon dioxide. It is also used in the construction of airplane passenger compartments and in model airplanes and boats.
