My question was " has anyone seen reports from any other country stating lack of balsa supplies due to balsa being diverted to wind turbine production"

Balsa is in short supply here in Canada too, I do not believe they are burning it in factories as they have ample coal supplies for that purpose, the story this side of the pond is the same as yours, wind turbine blades are constructed with a balsa core which is using a huge amount of the available balsa.
Hopefully suppliers will meet that demand and have some decent wood to supply those of us that like to build, maybe as its a fast growing tree an increase in plantation size or the number of plantations will achieve this, until then we sit and wait patiently..
