As we approach the penultimate months of our 40th year AES Solar are delighted to announce our latest commemorative event. We are announcing a giveaway to give back to our community and thank customers for their ongoing support.
AES Solar have 40 young silver birch trees free to a good home! Not only will we supply the trees free of charge but arrange delivery and planting. We will also provide the necessary equipment to give the tree the best start in life including tree ties, guards and (recycled) tree stakes.
To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is like our Facebook page and email email@example.com with your name and address. These trees will be allocated to the first 40 entrants who meet the below requirements. We will then contact you in due course to confirm the details and arrange delivery. We will arrange this delivery alongside scheduled works in the local area to avoid unnecessary carbon footprint.

Trees for the Future
The silver birch (Betula Pendula) is a striking, medium-sized deciduous tree. It is most known for and named after its silvery-white bark. This is particularly stunning during the winter months when the leaves are bare. The variety we have chosen has been cultivated to grow between 12m to 18m tall.
This tree is hardy and more than up to the challenge of the sometimes harsh Scottish climate. They are suitable for smaller gardens, but it is recommended they are planted at least 10 feet from the house.
Trees are the ultimate multi-taskers combatting both the climate crisis and biodiversity loss. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and produce oxygen. They are also able to provide food and habitat for a wide range of wildlife.
Tree planting has ‘mind-blowing potential’ to tackle climate change. We are hoping this initiative will encourage others to ‘branch out’ and make these small steps. As stated by the Woodland Trust’s Big Climate Fightback campaign, Every Tree Counts.
George Goudsmit, Managing Director of AES Solar said: “We are delighted to take this opportunity to thank our customers and give back to our local community. The wider issue of climate change is one that is extremely close to our hearts. We hope this will continue to raise awareness while sharing the benefits of solar power. What better way than allocating these stunning trees and providing enjoyment for years to come?”
Growing a Green Community
Founded in 1979, AES Solar quickly established themselves as the first manufacturer of solar thermal collectors in Western Europe. Celebrating 40 years of business, we have since adapted to the changes in the market, embracing solar PV and battery solutions.
These four decades in business are being celebrated with a year full of special events. These celebrations will not only mark our birthday milestone but give back to the local area and community. Our most recent commemorative event saw a team of dedicated AES Solar friends and family complete a 44 km walk for charity.
The last 40 years are just the beginning and the future of solar is bright. We hope these 40 new trees will continue to flourish alongside us as we work towards a more sustainable future.
