Money doesn’t grow on trees. At least that’s what I thought before learning about World Tree.
World Tree is not the usual raise you see featured in KingsCrowd’s reports. Instead of offering equity to investors, it shares the revenue from the sale of its timber harvest.
The concept is simple. World Tree USA collects money from investors every year to plant several hundred acres of the Empress Splendor tree (Paulownia Fortunei), one of the fastest growing trees in the world, on independently managed farms across North and Central America. After 10 years, the company will cut the trees down and sell them on the timber market. World Tree will then share 25% of the profits with investors, 50% with farmers, and keep the last 25% for itself.
And that’s how trees bring money to investors.
