Green Planet Balsa

As far as I understand these matters, for some reason deciduous, slow growing trees like Balsa are classified as hardwoods, whilst softwoods come from fast growing coniferous non-deciduous varieties. Confusingly, Balsa is obviously quite soft and Pine can be very hard indeed so merely relying on the mechanical property of wood to determin if it's a hardwood or softwood is incorrect.
