Live Farmer Webinar Series: Pine vs. Paulownia (Empress) Trees

Friday, Sept 18th, 1 PM ET

Register via Zoom Webinar here.

Sign up for our webinar and be the first to receive a copy of our new report – Pine vs Paulownia – researched and prepared for World Tree by Agile Rainmakers.

If you are a Southern tree farmer then chances are you have grown Loblolly pine. Government subsidies in the 1980s encouraged widespread planting of pine, but today the market is stagnant and many landowners are looking for viable alternatives.

World Tree is committed to a new flavour of forestry, based on the Empress Splendor tree. But why have we chosen this tree, and how does it really compare to pine? We were delighted when business development analysts, Agile Rainmakers, offered to do an economic comparison of these two types of tree. They wrote up their results in a report that surprised even us!

Join us for this webinar where we will share what we have learned about Pine vs Paulownia. All registrants will receive a copy of the report in advance of its publication later this month.

Live Farmer Webinar Series: New Future for Farmers

Thursday, September 24th, 7 PM ET

Register via Zoom Webinar here.

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) trees. Empress Splendor is the fastest growing tree in the world, reaching hardwood maturity in just 10 years.

World Tree provides premium Empress Splendor saplings to qualifying farmers for free 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.

This webinar is designed to answer all your questions, so you can decide if World Tree’s program is a fit for you and your farm. This includes:

What are benefits of growing trees, and why Empress Splendor?
What does it take to grow Empress Splendor successfully?
What are the potential costs and profits from participating in the program?
What is Empress Splendor lumber used for and how much does it sell for?
How do I qualify as a World Tree farmer?
