Have you heard about the tree that will save the world?

From small beginnings...

This Empress tree, just a few weeks old,  has the potential to change the future for families, farmers and the planet.

...big dreams can grow...

In 6 months the Empress tree can grow 9 feet tall or higher, sucking up carbon dioxide and providing shade for neighbouring plants.

...providing quality hardwood in 10 years.

The Empress tree is the fastest growing tree in the world and can be sustainably harvested for its lumber in just 10 years.

We are uniting farmers...

World Tree works with farmers in North and Central America. We give the trees for free to the farmers who grow them in return for a share of the revenue on harvest.

…with impact investors

Investors provide the funding and share in the profits on harvest.

Restoring the lungs of Mother Earth

Due to their fast growth rate, the leaves of the Empress tree drawdown more carbon dioxide than any other tree.
