Tree Planting Initiative
Able Canopies… Going Green, One Tree at a Time
Here at Able Canopies, we’re regularly striving to become a greener company that contributes to saving the planet by creating eco-friendly policies for our staff to follow. Our continued commitment to environmental awareness has secured us the renowned ISO 14001 certification for many years, which is something we are particularly proud of.
We are very proud that in 2021, we off-set our carbon footprint by 29.316 tonnes. However, in order to build on our ‘green goals’, we plan to implement more initiatives at Able Canopies HQ to off-set our carbon footprint further. We are also aware that many schools will be looking to do the same, as well as teaching their pupils the importance of lowering our planets carbon footprint and helping natural habitats and wildlife to flourish. That’s why we’ve come up with an idea that can help us both meet our goals, all you have to do is choose us as your canopy or shelter supplier.
So, in order to help us both achieve this, in October 2021, we started planting trees for every canopy order we receive for a school environment. We will also plant trees for every recommendation we receive that results in the booking of a site survey, and subsequent order.
The organisation we have chosen to sponsor is Tree Appeal; an environmental organisation that plants trees to create wildlife habitats, combat climate change and make a greener world. They plant their trees in schools, woodland and nature reserves across the UK and Ireland.
Our Green Goal:
We have set ourselves a goal of planting x400* trees by October 2022. We will update this page with our progress and tree planting news once the year is up, so be sure to pop back for an update.
*We plan to plant a total of x200 trees however, because we have also decided to twin each tree, we will therefore plant a total of x400 trees; 200 in the UK and x200 in Africa so we can help the environment in our own country as well as in developing countries too.
What You’ll Receive
For every order placed for a school environment that contains at least one canopy, we’ll plant two trees; one in the UK and a ‘twinned’ tree in Africa.
Once your canopy has been installed, we will send you an aftersales pack which includes your canopy guarantee (if applicable), maintenance schedule and a certificate with your unique tree planting codes. The codes can be entered on the Tree Appeal website
so you can find out where your tree has been planted. The certificate is particularly handy as you can keep it for your environmental records.
Free Eco-Friendly Activity Pack
We have also created a free Eco-Friendly Activity Pack which you can integrate into your lessons plans. This free pack contains four different activities along with information and a selection of interesting facts about recycling, pollination and trees.

Let’s Get Started
By choosing Able Canopies as your canopy and shelter supplier, you will be making an eco-conscience choice and that will have a positive impact on our environment. If you are in need of a canopy in your outside area whether it’s to cover an outdoor dining area, the entrance to your building, a playground or create an outdoor classroom, our canopies will provide the weather protection required.

Would you Like Trees Planted on Your Land?
If you are a school or own a woodland or nature reserve, you can contact the Tree Appeal to apply for free trees. Please note, Able Canopies cannot supply trees directly to your school or organisation, we make donations to the Tree Appeal and they plant the trees in the grounds of their successful applicants.
