Meet the Team

We envision a future where farmers are appreciated for the significant role they play and people are inspired by their contribution. Our carbon offset program makes it possible for everyone to reverse their impact on the environment and generate wealth for themselves, their families and their communities.

About World Tree

The World Tree Carbon Offset Program is managed by World Tree Technologies, a company founded in 2002 by our president and CEO Wendy Burton. Wendy has travelled to Brazil, Paraguay, Australia, New Zealand and throughout the USA to learn to successfully grow and manage Empress Splendor trees and has personally over 20 years knowledge and experience working with these trees.

While the Empress Tree is known and greatly prized in Asia, it is relatively unknown in North America. World Tree has been an innovator, leading the way in researching the best way to plant and grow the tree, educating the public in the properties of the tree and training farmers how to successfully cultivate it.

Through Wendy’s efforts, the story of the Empress tree started to spread and celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Maria Shriver, Dolly Parton and Wayne Newton purchased trees for their properties. The Empress tree caught the attention of Morley Safer of ’60 Minutes’. His company, the American Environmental Review did a short documentary on World Tree. Wendy and the Empress trees were also featured on Oprah and Connie Sellecca’s ‘Family and Home’.

The World Tree Carbon Offset Program launched in 2015. The program aligns perfectly with World Tree’s mission and values. It provides a way to effectively absorb considerable amount of carbon, protect old growth forests, support farmers and provide ordinary people with the ability to make a difference to the planet with their investment dollars.
