At OVO, we’re absolutely wild about trees. What’s not to love? They’re lush, they’re green and they help our planet by crunching serious amounts of carbon. And we know you all love trees too.
That’s why, from 1 October we're committing to plant a tree for every new and existing OVO member - for every year they’re with us. We've already planted over 1 million of them, and we now plant 5 trees a year for every OVO Beyond customer. But over the coming year, together with our new partner the Woodland Trust and I Dig Trees, we're planning to plant around 900,000 more.
Yep, 900,000! That’s one tree for every member at OVO plus additional trees for OVO Beyond members. So you’re helping us fight the climate by just being a part of our carbon-kicking journey. Nice one.
To celebrate this tree-mendous new pledge, we’ve decided to give OVO members the chance to win a 2-night stay for two at a luxury treehouse in the stunning wooded depths of Sweden. All you need to do is tell us your favourite tree here and we’ll select the winner at random!

The Treehotel is famous the world over and lets you fulfill your childhood dreams of sleeping in the trees in spectacular style. Whether you’re looking for an adventure, a relaxing break from the stresses of everyday life or simply to unwind in nature, we’re certain you’ll love every minute of this once in a lifetime opportunity.
The prize includes:
- 2 nights for two to stay in an awesome luxury treehouse (just like the ones pictured!)
- Breakfast, lunch and dinner
- A selection of indulgent treats on arrival
- A sauna
- A choice of either a guided forest hike or a local flavour tour
- A £550 Flightgift card so you have the flexibility to fly whenever you feel comfortable
- A return transfer from Lulea airport to Treehotel
- Every ounce of carbon created on your journey to Treehotel being offset by (you guessed it) planting more trees!
And we know that there are limits on travelling abroad right now - so we’ve ensured the winner has up until the end of 2021 to choose whenever they want to visit Treehotel, at a time when it’s safe to travel.
