The Indian Bean tree [catalpa bignoides] is very useful for carving.

Catalpa is very durable and only has a couple of years worth of sapwood i.e. similar to the growth habit of Sweet Chestnut.

It could prove to be a useful construction timber providing it was grown in a forest environment to help prevent spreading.
