Earth Day is right around the corner and traditionally, kids plant trees in honor of the Earth. But why stop planting trees just because you grow up?! Why not plant a lot of trees and make some money?!
AGA has partnered with World Tree - A carbon offset program to help bring more trees and more profit to farms and ranches across the US. They are looking for farmers across the Southern States with 10-20 acres at an elevation less than 2200ft to spare to grow empress trees.
World Tree provides the trees, training, and handles the sales; all you have to provide is the land and care. The profits from the trees are split 50/50 - and there are no costs to you should the trees not thrive! This is a great opportunity!
