The World Tree 2017 Carbon Offset Program

The World Tree 2017 Carbon Offset Program is a way you can directly impact climate change while making return on investment.

The program has two primary objectives:

  • Generate income from the growth and harvest of Empress Splendor trees
  • Offset the carbon footprint of our investors

For every $2500 invested in the company in 2017, World Tree will plant 1 acre of Empress Splendor trees.

Investors receive “COP 2017” shares in the company, which entitles them to 50% share of the profits upon harvest of those trees in ten years.

1 acre of Empress Splendor trees is enough to offset your carbon footprint for life.
