Once upon a time, there was a native tree that grew in North America known as the Empress tree. People in the Orient revered this tree and, to this day, hold it in high esteem for its fast growth and quality wood.
The Empress tree is big—bigger than other trees; but, it plays nicely with other species, even though it has amazing super powers other trees don’t have.
Meet Wendy Burton
World Tree founder and CEO, Wendy Burton, is someone who radiates passion. Otherwise known as “The Tree Lady”, she has spent the last 17 years promoting the economic and environmental benefits of the Empress Splendor tree.
With every new season, World Tree’s partnership with farmers and investors discover ways to keep up the demand for timber without sacrificing our forests—with a tree that tackles global carbon emissions at the same time. When anthropologist Margaret Mead declared that “a small group of thoughtful people could change the world”, I’m sure the group she was describing included people just like Wendy.
