World Tree Technologies Inc’s CEO, Wendy Burton - aka the Tree Lady - recently met ex-President Jimmy Carter to talk about the Empress Tree. The Empress Tree is the fastest growing tree in the world and absorbs more carbon than any other tree.
As a result of Ms. Burton’s conversation with the ex-President, World Tree began this week to harvest the first of four plantations in the Southern United States, including President Carter’s personal Empress plantation!
“We have developed a wonderful relationship with President Carter and feel honored that he chose World Tree to harvest his plantation” said Ms. Burton after meeting with President Carter. “Mr. Carter has been a huge advocate for the Empress tree and we are so excited to be working with him.” The company, which has previously supplied Empress lumber to the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation for use in its Telecaster guitars, plans to use instrument grade tonewood harvested from Mr. Carter’s plantation to produce a line of presidential guitars.
President Carter has been growing Empress Splendor trees for more than 15 years, and has created cabinets and furniture from the tree’s strong lightweight wood.
The Empress Splendor is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest growing tree in the world. It reaches hardwood maturity in under 10 years and absorbs eleven times more carbon than any other tree. It is non-GMO, non-invasive and has been praised by Farmers Almanac as “Possibly the world’s most amazing tree.”
Through its “Carbon Offset Program” or “COP,” World Tree intends to plant 3.5 million Empress Trees over the next five years, producing $3 billion of marketable lumber and removing 34 million tons of carbon dioxide from the earth’s atmosphere. In World Tree’s COP, the company works in association with tree farmers and eco-investors to produce positive returns, both financial and environmental.
In September of 2018, World Tree’s COP launched a financing campaign on the WeFunder crowdfunding platform, and recently reached its first milestone in that campaign.
