We Eat Carbon for Breakfast, Can You?
Meet the Empress Splendor, the fastest growing hardwood tree in the world. She’s a natural beauty (non-GMO), a real fighter (fire resistant and grows back after harvest), and a good neighbor (replenishes soil and non-invasive). To top it off, she eats 11x more carbon than any other tree. (See below for a comparison of a 35-year-old fir and a 5-year-old Empress.)
Save the Earth: Offset Your Carbon Footprint
At World Tree, we’re planting Empresses all across North America. Every $2,000 raised is another acre planted. That’s 103 tons of carbon being absorbed every year. For reference, the average American produces 20 tons of carbon a year.
Quality Hardwood in 10 years
Not only is the Empress good for the planet, she also makes for beautiful blonde, straight-grained hardwood when she matures in 10 years. Light as balsa, strong as pine, and water resistant.
The Tree that Keeps on Giving
At current prices, one acre of Empress lumber goes for $30-$420K depending on quality and finish. 50% of those profits will go to farmers, 25% to us, and 25% to investors like you. Help us invest in your future.
