World Tree is disrupting the forestry industry
with our impact-focused programs for investors and farmers.

Planting for Prosperity

World Tree’s programs are based on one of the fastest-growing trees in the world: The Empress Splendor (botanical name Paulownia).  When you invest in the Empress, you are investing in eco-timber farms across North and Latin America. You are supporting farmers and protecting our forests. And you get to share in any profits from the sale of the lumber.

Climate change, soil degradation, and deforestation are issues that will affect us all. World Tree investors are putting their money into action to create impactful nature-based climate change solutions.

We project long-term potential to be high, as the United Nations predicts that demand for timber will double by 2050. Most trees take 20 to 50 years to reach maturity. Empress trees reach hardwood maturity in approximately 10 years and regenerate a new tree after they have been harvested.  This means we can keep up with the demand for timber without sacrificing our forests.

What they're saying

I am a believer in the need to get a handle on climate change to stop the events that are occurring around the world. I have an Aunt that lives in California and came close to the fires that occurred in California. Replacing the trees to restore the landscape is most essential in my book.

Kimberly F. KatzInvestor

I like that the returns are more "real" than most investments that I have seen (i.e. based on a tangible product rather than speculation), and the impact on climate change is a huge bonus.

I believe this will help improve our environment and business for the World tree and investment for me.
