If you’re going to plant a tree, plant one that will benefit you and the Earth. The Empress tree offers you more than any other single tree that grows on our planet. It is not an alien species to North America. Fossilized evidence that species once grew on this continent in abundance has been located. Beautiful and unusual, the benefits of hybrid Paulownia trees aren’t a bunch of marketing hype. Become a greener citizen by growing these trees in the landscape.

The Royal Empress tree is actually a most convenient truth for benefit of all.

The Empress Splendor tree is the fastest growing hardwood tree in the world (Guinness Book of World Records) reaching maturity within 10 years. The Empress Splendor is a non-invasive, hybrid species, that can grow in many parts of the United States and Canada, where its primary use is lumber.


Empress Splendor trees are not genetically modified but are bred by conventional methods used by farmers for thousands of years. They do not respond well to chemical products, preferring instead organic farming methods and the use of natural fertilizers such as chicken manure. The Empress tree is a ‘wet’ wood which makes it naturally fire and insect resistant. In North America, we plant in altitudes of less than 2,200 feet with summer temperatures of 70°F (21°C) and above for at least 5-6 months a year. In locations closer to the equator we plant at higher altitudes. The trees typically grow 10-20 feet in the first year and can reach maturity in 10 years. As said earlier on the trees are naturally resistant to fire and insects making them extremely hardy. One of the amazing properties of the tree is that it regrows from the stump very quickly after harvesting and will regrow itself up to 7 times after being cut down. This makes it a sustainable source of lumber for generations to come. No tree actually gives you “instant shade.” For that you need a roof. Most fast growing trees will add 4 to 6 feet a year in height. The Royal Empress tree can grow an incredible 15 feet a year. They have a lovely high-branched canopy and non-aggressive root system. You won’t have to worry about it being invasive, or prone to disease and pest problems. Instead of seeking water, Royal Empress is proven to have excellent drought tolerance. You also get the bonus of large, beautiful lavender blooms in spring. The Royal Empress tree offers a cloud of long lasting, gorgeous color that is sweetly scented. The leaves are very large in size and a nice rich green in summer. The wood is stronger than balsam and is actually a hardwood used in some countries for lumber and fine furniture. Because these trees grow so quickly, they can help you start saving money on utility costs in a few years – not decades. Large trees can shave up to 25 percent off of your heating and cooling bills. The most incredible benefit of the hybrid Paulownia tree is environmental. The huge leaves filter pollutants and toxins out of the air at a rapid pace. One Royal Empress tree can absorb up to 48 pounds of carbon dioxide a day and replace it our air with clean, pure oxygen. Just one tree has this capability. They also clear the air of harmful greenhouse gases. The roots of the Paulownia quickly absorb excessive fertilizer from crop field or animal production zones run off. World's Fastest-Growing Tree Why Royal Empress Trees? The Royal Empress is an entertaining tree year-round. In the winter, its branches are covered with furry, pea-sized buds, just waiting to burst into huge flowers. At the first sign of spring, the tree explodes with purple blooms. And the fragrance is incredible...like a cross between gardenia and jasmine. But our Royal Empress Tree is really known for its fast, dense growth. When summer comes, the tree forms a dense canopy that can drastically cut your power bills. The tropical-inspired leaves are huge, measuring about a foot wide. Plus, bigger leaves mean fewer branches, so you get more sunlight and natural heat coming through in the winter when you need it most. Best of all, the Royal Empress Tree is hassle-free. It grows almost anywhere, from Mexico to Canada, and has no significant insect or disease problems. And it tolerates drought and grows in almost any kind of soil, even toxic ones. It's a hardwood tree that lives to old age. Your Empress Tree is a hard worker, from its ability to cut household costs to its large leaves that act as giant air filters, pulling pollution out of the air at a remarkable rate How to

Grow Empress Tree: Plant empress tree seedlings in fall or spring in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 though 9. Select a planting site in full sun as far as possible from houses, pools or sidewalks (your own and those of your neighbors) to prevent its strong roots from causing problems. Look up while standing in the proposed planting site to determine how high the tree can grow without hitting electric lines or other obstacles. Some experts set the empress tree's maximum height at 15 feet, others list it as 40 and some put it at 65 feet, so allow the tree plenty of growing room to be on the safe side. Work the soil in the planting area to a depth of 18 inches, removing weeds and grass, and breaking up soil clumps. Apply a 3-inch layer of organic compost to the soil and work into the soil before planting. Although the empress tree tolerates any pH of soil from very acid to very alkaline, and grows well in average soils, it prefers humus-based loam that is well draining. Dig a planting hole on top of the worked soil. Make the hole as deep as a seedling's root ball and twice as wide. Remove the container gently. Unwind any roots that have grown around the inside of the container. Set the root ball in the center of the planting hole and use extracted dirt to fill in the sides of the hole. Build a circular basin around the tree with the rest of the extracted soil. Make it a little larger than the root ball. Slant the floor of the basin away from the tree toward the sides of the basin. Pour in 10 gallons of water and allow it to seep through to the seedling's roots. Repeat every week during the first growing season.
