Live Event: World Tree Eco-Tree Farming Seminar

Monday, August 9th, 5-6 PM CT
Courtyard Marriott Hotel, Montgomery AL

Join us for an informative and inspiring presentation on the opportunities to prosper and profit as a member of our Eco-Tree Farming Program.

We offer our incredibly fast-growing Empress Splendor (Paulownia fortunei and P. elongata) tree saplings to qualifying landowners at no cost. We then work together for 10 years while the trees grow and mature, producing light-weight, highly versatile hardwood lumber. We take care of the harvesting, milling and marketing of the lumber, and we split the profits 50/50. The trees can then regrow multiple times without replanting, and profits from any subsequent harvests belong 100% to you.

Empress Splendor trees not only produce valuable lumber – they also replenish depleted soils with nitrogen, the blossoms provide nectar to honey bees, and they clean the air with a very efficient form of photosynthesis.

Find out what hundreds of landowners in the Southeast US already know – our Eco-Tree Farming Program is an unmatched opportunity to plant a new type of tree crop on your land that can yield benefits for generations to come.

Meet our US Head of Forestry and farms, Andy Norris and US Farmer Outreach Team lead, Douglas Lawrence. We look forward to meeting you and having all your questions answered.
