About us & our partners
Our treeme.shop for Paulownia precious wood products was developed from the treeme project of Green Wood International AG.
Green Wood International AG was founded in 1984 and is mainly concerned with the topics of sustainability, ecology and the environment, which our CEO Wolfgang Goese is passionately promoting with all his heart around the Paulownia tree and its precious wood. Further information can be found at www.green-wood-international.com.
The project treeme stands for sustainable cultivation and management of Paulownia plantations in Europe for the production of Paulownia precious wood as Clear & Clean A commodity. Through this project Green Wood International AG cooperates with companies for the development and production of innovative Paulownia premium products. At www.treeme.com we show our tree plantations, our cultivation and the characteristics of Paulownia.
Only the best precious woods of Paulownia are used for the handmade tree-products. Together with our partners, we create unique works of value in the areas of sports, music, lifestyle and art from treeme-Paulownia wood, which we present in our treeme.shop.
