World Tree implements regenerative agroforestry projects – reversing climate change and making significant economic impacts for small farmers, institutional partners, and investors. We focus on protecting old-growth forests and infusing capital, resiliency, and a long-term future to small farmers with degraded or fallow agricultural property across North and Latin America.
World Tree is built around a dynamic team of accomplished professionals and industry experts able to implement and execute leading-edge planting programs at a rapid pace. We utilize the Empress Splendor (Paulownia) tree – the fastest growing tree in the world that consumes massive amounts of carbon, contributes mightily to soil health and resiliency, pairs perfectly with multiple intercropping and silvopasture regimes.
