Partner with us to grow valuable, renewable lumber, create carbon credits, and improve the productivity of your land for generations to come. World Tree partners with farmers and other landowners in Costa Rica, Guatemala and Mexico to plant and grow the incredibly fast-growing Empress Splendor tree (Paulownia elongata and fortunei and their hybrid).
The Japanese have referred to the Empress tree as “the gold tree” due to its significant economic potential. However, in reality, it is not easy to make money from the tree unless you know how to grow it correctly and can sell the lumber.
World Tree is the largest grower of Empress trees in Latin America. Our team of foresters have the experience needed to maximize the benefits from the tree. We are providing all that experience, as well as the Empress saplings, to our growers for free.
If you are looking for a long term cash-crop, have enough suitable land for the Empress tree, and eligible land for our carbon program, our Eco Tree Carbon+ Program may be a good fit for you.
