World Tree

The Empress Splendor tree is recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as “officially amazing”. It is the fastest growing hardwood tree in the world, and 1 acre of Empress Splendor trees is enough to offset your carbon footprint for life. 

For every $2500 invested in the company, World Tree will plant 1 acre of Empress Splendor trees. Investors receive “COP 2018” shares in the company, which entitles them to 50% share of the profits upon harvest of those trees in ten years.
