Do you have land on your farm that is going to waste? Perhaps you have planted pine or other crops that have left the soil depleted. Or maybe you are looking to diversify your crops with something new.
World Tree offers a program for farmers to plant and grow Empress Splendor (Paulownia fortunei and elongata) trees. The Empress Splendor is the fastest growing tree in the world, reaching hardwood maturity in just 10 years.
World Tree provides premium saplings to qualifying farmers at no cost in exchange for the care and maintenance of the trees while they grow through to the first harvest. World Tree finds the buyer for lumber in 10 years, and splits any profits 50/50 with the farmer. After the first harvest, the trees belong 100% to the farmers. The trees will grow back from the same root system up to 7 more times, so no need to replant.
