I Dig Trees OVO Energy TCV

Thanks to our Greener Energy customers, we planted a whopping 250,000 saplings this bare root season (October - March is the time of year when the trees are planted). This is on top of the 158,000 that were bedded in last year. Since I Dig Trees launched in 2015, together we’ve planted over 400,000 native trees in urban spaces and communities all over the UK.

I Dig Trees isn’t some corporate tree planting scheme held in a far away place. It’s designed to make a real difference where you live. Reducing CO², improving green spaces and encouraging wildlife to set up home. We joined thousands of volunteers, and community groups, to get our hands dirty and improve your cities, parks and schools.

Ready. Steady. Grow. 

See what we’ve accomplished together (and watch the OVO team break a sweat as a bonus).


Join us and go Greener. As well as 100% renewable electricty, we'll also plant 5 trees on your behalf.

Growing our pledge

Actions speak louder than words. So we raised the stakes this year, planting 5 saplings (up from 3) for each of our Greener Energy customers. This gave us a target of 250,000 trees.

See how we did - this year and last - on The Conservation Volunteers' handy tree map or search #IDigTrees
