World Tree is looking for farmers and other landowners to plant and grow our fast-growing Empress Splendor trees. The World Tree Farmer Program model is simple: World Tree provides the trees, training and support; you plant the trees and care for them; World Tree brings a buyer for the lumber; together we share in the profits.
The Empress Splendor is the fastest growing tree 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 and produces light-weight hardwood lumber. Even better, it regrows from the stump up to 7 more 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 you have suitable land, 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 bring a buyer for the lumber when the trees are ready for harvest.
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.
