We have launched Harrogate Estate Agent’s FIRST EVER ‘plant a tree’ scheme to help combat climate change, for every board we will plant one tree.
Global warming is happening at a faster rate than ever before. World temperatures are rising because of human activity, and climate change now threatens every aspect of human life. How do we fight against these dangerous changes? Our most powerful weapon in this battle- trees.
Through photosynthesis, they are the ultimate carbon capturers! As trees grow, they help absorb and sink the carbon that would otherwise contribute to global warming. Trees result in feeding themselves with the carbon we desperately need to minimise from our atmosphere. Not only do trees capture carbon, they also fight the cruel effects of a changing climate. They can help: prevent flooding, reduce city temperature, reduce pollution and keep soil nutrient-rich.Trees are without doubt the lungs of the Earth and are essential to our future wellbeing on this wonderful planet; we feel the physical planting of a tree couldn’t be more demonstrative of our wish to improve the environment.
So, we decided to take action in time with the COP26 Climate Change Conference. For every new instruction, we will plant one tree. Being Harrogate’s only fully comprehensive property agent offering a range of services, we hope to plant thousands of trees.
Joining forces with a tree planting organisation; the trees will be planted as part of a wider project to support communities in poverty and increase biodiversity in Madagascar, Kenya and Haiti. Not only will the trees themselves help the planet, but the planting projects also help grow the economy and offer employment opportunities in these low-income communities. We take pride in the positive outcomes that this project will provide and are excited to be leading the way with combatting estate agent’s carbon footprint around the world.
You can follow how many trees we have planted by checking the tree counter on our website (we have already planted 28)! Think about how you/your business can contribute towards this national battle. FSS won’t single-handedly reverse the effects of climate change, BUT as a community, we CAN. Any actions are better than no actions!
By using FSS, you are contributing to the journey of combatting climate change. So please do get in touch with us for your property needs, to help us, help you, help our world.
