Are you investing for impact?

Are you looking for an opportunity to impact climate change while at the same time generating a financial return? The World Tree Carbon Offset Program is a sustainable timber investment based on the Empress Splendor tree, the fastest growing tree in the world.

Empress trees provide valuable hardwood lumber within just 10 years. They also absorb 11 times more carbon than any other tree. Participants in the program both offset their carbon footprint and share in the profits of the sale of the lumber.


We offer a truly green, impact investment based on the Empress Splendor tree that is RRSP and TFSA eligible.
