What people are saying

Within our very first contact with World Tree, it was apparent that this is an organization incredibly passionate and dedicated to their vital mission.
 
Later, during the course of building our relationship, we came to understand how incredibly good their team is in executing it: Providing a world-class impact investment opportunity, while, at the same, fully realizing their social and environmental mandate.
 
In fact – as we came to learn- a good number of our attendees are already happy investors with World Tree!
 
It remains our distinct honor to host World Tree as a Keynote Speaker at our events, and we do hope to again include their participation in the future. We only feature the very best companies and organizations at SUSTAINATOPIA, and World Tree certainly fits the bill!

World Tree is one of those rare investments that is fantastic for all three: the planet, people, and profits! Everyone should have some of it in their portfolio!!!

I invested in World Tree because I love the company’s mission and culture, I love having the opportunity to offset my family’s carbon footprint, and I love the possibility of making a good return on my investment.
 
What makes World Tree different is that the company has a wholistic view to its operations.  The company has designed its offering to empower farmers, give investors of all means a way to participate, and all the while take care of people and the planet.

I’ve devoted nearly three decades to branding, marketing and growing businesses, from Fortune 50s to garage startups, that create and capture significant value. Organizations that do important work for many of us, and ideally all of us. And teams of salt-of-the-earth people that make me smile.

So when I first caught word of World Tree’s team, vision and model, its farmer-first collaboratives with boots already on the ground, and its ROI well beyond the balance sheet, it was an instant and total no-brainer. I had to get involved.

Seriously. To create economic opportunity, reverse climate change, and further beautify our world all at the same time? Did I mention it’s a no-brainer? Bottom line (triple or otherwise), love these folks and all they’re doing for all of us. Looking forward to years of smiles ahead.

At 3Sisters Sustainable Management, Inc, we believe that innovation is the key to creating future value, both in terms of impact and in financial terms. World Tree is a true innovator in multiple ways: many years of research to breed a tree that will sequester more carbon than any other tree while producing the lightest, fastest growing hardwood with the finest grain for multiple purposes; then innovating with a business model that benefits the growers who put in the work, above investors and the company, while projecting outlandish returns for all stakeholders!

Restoring the lungs of Mother Earth

To fuel its fast growth rate the Empress tree absorbs extraordinary amounts of carbon

One acre of trees can …

Provide economic resilience to farmers in North and Latin America.

Absorb up to 90 tons of CO2 in one year, 4 x the footprint of an average North American.

Drop 22,000 lbs of nutrient rich leaves, returning 100 kgs of nitrogen to the soil every year.

Produce up to 33,000 bf of eco-timber within 10 years as an alternate to old growth hardwoods.

Produce nectar-rich flowers; bees can collect enough pollen for 100 jars of honey per year.

Provide much needed shelter to companion plants such as coffee, cacao and plantains.
