World Tree partners with farmers and other landowners to plant and grow the incredibly fast-growing Empress Splendor tree. The World Tree Eco-Tree Farming Program model is simple: World Tree provides the trees, training and support; you plant the trees and care for them; World Tree harvests, mills and markets the lumber; together we share in the profits 50/50.
The Empress Splendor is one of the fastest-growing hardwood trees in the world. In its first season, it can easily grow to a height of 10 feet and reaches 20 feet on the best sites. It grows to hardwood maturity within 10 years. Even better, it regrows from the stump multiple times, each time producing more timber for harvest.
Empress Splendor trees produce a light, strong hardwood known as the ‘aluminum of lumber’ that is water, rot and termite resistant.
If your land qualifies, you can grow Empress Splendor trees with the help and support of an experienced team. We give you the trees for free, we train and support you in the best growing methods, and we harvest, mill and market the lumber.
Whether it’s through depleted soil, or land that is too expensive to farm, your unused acreage is taking money out of your pocket. World Tree provides a way that you can get started with a highly profitable crop, with the full support and experience of our team.
