World Tree intends to plant, manage and harvest the Empress Splendor (Paulownia) tree. Gross Profits will be distributed to investors once the trees have reached maturity, have been harvested and the timber sold for profit. For every 2,000 Series A 2020 Eco-Tree Units investors purchase, World Tree will plant 1 acre of trees. Investors can receive distributions in 8-12 years if trees reach maturity, are successfully harvested, and if the timber is sold for profit. The profits, if any, from the harvest of the ES Trees underlying the Series A 2020 Eco-Tree Units will be distributed 50% to the Farmers and 50% to the Company. The Company will then share equally between the Series A 2020 Eco-Tree Unitholders (distributed pro-rata) and the Manager, resulting is the Unitholders receiving 25% net profits from the harvest.
Alignment of Interests and Impact:
World Tree’s Eco-Tree Program is a way to fight climate change, protect our forests and bring resilience back to the land. It provides an investment opportunity that also gives back and has a direct environmental impact. Over the course of a year, one acre of trees provide significant carbon sequestration.
The Eco-Tree Program addresses many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) including No Poverty, Gender Equality, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action, Life on Land, and Partnership for the Goals.

Risks and Risk Management:
• Agricultural risks include crop failure. World Tree plants trees across dozens of farms many thousands of miles apart. World Tree has replacement tree reserves available.
• The Farmers contracted by World Tree must properly care for the Empress Splendor (Paulownia) trees from their planting as startlings through their growth cycle to maturity. Farmers must properly water, prune and care for the trees. Failure to do so could result in some or all a Farmer’s Empress Splendor (Paulownia) trees either dying or failing to mature to expected height and diameter, thereby reducing the amount of Empress Splendor (Paulownia) lumber that may be harvested from a Farmer’s trees. World Tree works closely with farmers in the US and globally in educating and training.
• Investment risks include no regulatory review, highly speculative, limited voting rights, limit on amount available to repay unit holders, no tax advice, lack of marketability and liquidity of units.
• Issuer risks include reliance on ability and judgment of Company management, net worth and going concern of the Company, deployment of Empress Splendor (Paulownia) tree startlings, and farmer risk as indicated above.
• Industry risks include natural disturbances, world events, lack of an established market for Empress Splendor (Paulownia) timber in North America, and factors out of the Company’s control.
