Did you know that a single tree can absorb as much as 21.77 kilograms of carbon dioxide per year? Break out the calculators – if we plant 240 trees, that’s an impressive 5,225 kilograms of carbon dioxide being pulled out of the atmosphere annually!  Now that’s the kind of ‘weight loss’ program the planet can get behind!


Keeping Cool

Trees aren’t just the planet’s lungs; they’re also its personal, all-natural air conditioners. The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree equals ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day. With 240 trees, we’re talking about a natural AC unit the size of all of Brighton! So, next time you consider dialling up the AC, remember, there’s a tree out there working its bark off to keep you cool. Let’s not make it leaf overtime, shall we?

Strength In Depth

The world loses 7.6 million square kilometres of forests per year, equivalent to 27 football pitches every minute. By planting 240 trees, we’re essentially recruiting 240 green warriors to the front lines, defending the planet one leaf at a time. It might not seem like a big number, but in the grand scheme of things, every tree is a goal scored for Team Earth!

Job Creation

Nearly 1.6 billion people worldwide depend on forests for their livelihood, including 70 million indigenous people. That’s nearly the entire population of the UK! By planting 240 trees, we’re not just creating a mini-forest, but we’re also potentially providing resources, employment, and sustenance for a number of people. Think of it as setting up a nature-powered job centre, only instead of suits and ties, there are leaves and bark.


Finally, trees host up to 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. By planting 240 trees, we’re creating micro-habitats or ‘tree-mansions’, if you will, for countless species, maintaining the intricate balance of our ecosystem. We’re not just tree planters; we’re also architects of biodiversity!


By working with One Tree Planted and their tree planting program, Westflow and our customers are making a positive environmental impact. Each new heating system we install comes with a bonus of ten new trees, helping to offset carbon emissions, combat climate change, and protect biodiversity.

So, next time you’re enjoying a breath of fresh air, remember to thank a tree. And the next time you’re installing a new heating system with Westflow, remember that you’re not just getting a top-notch service but also contributing to a greener, cleaner Britain. As they say, ‘leaf’ it better than you found it!
