World Tree, with a pre-money valuation of $8.42 million, is raising funds on WeFunder. The company plants Empress Splendor trees in North and Latin America to reverse climate change. The Empress trees also answer global demand for sustainable hardwood. World Tree gives the trees to the farmers at no cost and also trains them to take care of them. World Tree was founded by Wendy Burton and has already planted 2000 acres with over $2.7 million raised since its inception. The current crowdfunding round has a minimum target of $250,000 and a maximum target of $10,000,000, and every $3,000 raised will be used to plant another acre of Empress Splendor. World Tree is using trees to protect the environment and offset our carbon footprint.
