Carbon dioxide is one of the biggest drivers of climate change, and we all know we should be playing our part in reducing and negating carbon emissions.

Tree planting not only helps offset your emissions, but it comes with tonnes of other benefits too.

As such, in 2020 Longhurst became a Certified Partner to MoreTrees, an organisation set up to empower both individuals and businesses to offset their carbon footprint.

What does it mean for our clients?

  • Brand new clients

    If you become a new financial planning client of Longhurst, once you have fully onboarded, we will plant 10 trees on your behalf, then send you a cool certificate confirming it!

  • Client birthdays

    For our overseas connections, and where we can’t send you chocolate brownies (which our UK clients receive), we will instead plant 10 trees on your behalf, then send you a cool certificate confirming it!

  • Random gifts

    From time to time we love to send our clients random gifts – whether that be a ‘Thinking of you’ postcard, or some flowers. We will now also be planting trees on your behalf!

What are the benefits?

  • Help the planet

    Every tree planted absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, offsetting your carbon. It also releases oxygen, filters the air, filters rainfall and increases atmospheric moisture.

  • Reduce extreme poverty

    More Tree’s partner projects provide fair wage employment to impoverished villages and communities across the world. This gives people a wage to feed their families and communities an income to support local trade.

  • Combat deforestation

    The more trees planted, the more healthy forests that begin to re-emerge – restoring animal habitats, purifying water sources, replenishing soil and controlling flooding and erosion.

  • Show you care

    80% of consumers want businesses to help them make a difference. Tree planting shows everyone you care about your impact on the environment and you’re doing your part to help.

How More Trees do it

They partner with regulated non-profit NGOs (non-government organisations) who work with local communities to restore healthy forests and reduce extreme poverty across the world.

They hire and train villagers to plant trees, giving them a consistent income to provide for their families and support the local economy.

Each tree planted absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while also overcoming the negative effects of deforestation on animal populations and the environment.

The more trees you plant, the more you help.
