Feather Smailes Scales (FSS) have become the first Harrogate estate agent to launch a ‘plant a tree’ scheme to help combat climate change, ahead of next week’s COP26 Climate Change Conference.

For every for sale, to let or auction board put up, FSS will plant a tree. So when your for sale sign goes up, you’ll know that somewhere in the world, a new tree is growing too, and the planet is a little better protected.

Harrogate’s leading estate agent have joined forces with a tree planting agency to ensure that they do their bit for our world.

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.

Simon Croft is a partner at FSS. He said he hopes thousands trees will be planted under the company’s scheme:

“We are all much more aware of the need to be greener, as such all of us at FSS wanted to contribute to reducing our carbon footprint.

 “We are conscious of numerous things we can do to help, such as staycations, recycling, sustainable energy, or greener cars – and they all have divergent arguments as to how green they actually are! 

“To try and improve our green footprint as a business, we have decided to plant a tree for every single board we place on property or land we have for sale or to let, across sales, lettings, auctions and commercial property.

“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 you know whenever we are instructed, you are also helping to help us save our world!”

FSS, the only fully comprehensive property agent in the district, offers a range of services, including sales, lettings, surveys, auctions, valuations and commercial offerings.

FSS Property are leading the way with combatting estate agents’ carbon footprints.

Anyone who instructs FSS to sell, let or auction their property will have a tree planted on their behalf! You can follow how many trees the company has planted by checking the tree-counter on their website.
