An encounter with Morley Safer
When World Tree CEO, Wendy Burton got a call from Morley Safer, she had no idea what was about to unfold. Here’s a conversation where Wendy shares the story:
This is what Morley Safer said to Wendy In his first conversation with her:
“…My staff brought your company to my attention and I have to tell you young lady, quite frankly, it sounds like a scam. I’m going to do my research on you and if I find out it’s a scam, I’m going to expose you. But if I find out all that you’re saying about this tree is real, then I’m going to do a documentary on you.”
Here’s the documentary from The American Environmental Review with Morley Safer:
The American Environmental Review said: “World Tree was handpicked as a featured guest because of it’s commitment to the environment in which we live.”
This documentary focuses on the environmental benefits of the Empress Splendor tree, it’s ability to replenish the soil and the quality of the lumber produced.
