OneTreePlanted: Earth Month Partnership with Patio Guys

OneTreePlanted: Earth Month Partnership with Patio Guys

At Patio Guys and OneTreePlanted, we believe trees are an essential part of our environment, providing a range of benefits that are crucial for the health and well-being of our planet. From providing oxygen and clean air to filtering water and mitigating the effects of climate change, trees are an important resource that we must value and protect.

One of the best ways to protect and preserve trees is by planting more of them. This is why Patio Guys has chosen to continue its partnership with OneTreePlanted by planting a tree for every furniture piece refinished during the month of April. Our organizations have been in partnership since 2019 which has already led to the planting of over 2000 trees throughout California and around the World.

Why do we do this? What do we find so important about trees that we choose to give a portion of our revenue away every April to tree planting efforts like OneTreePlanted? Well, there are several reason we find this cause so important, but here are the main ones.

1. Trees Produce Oxygen – OneTreeplanted Benefit 1

One of the most important functions of trees is to produce oxygen through photosynthesis. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, making them vital for the health of our planet. In fact, just one mature tree can produce enough oxygen for four people to breathe in a day. By planting more trees, we can increase the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere and improve the overall health of our planet.

2. Trees Filter Air Pollution – OneTreeplanted benefit 2

In addition to producing oxygen, trees also play a crucial role in filtering air pollution. Trees absorb pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide, helping to reduce the levels of these harmful gases in the air. By planting more trees in urban areas like Los Angeles,  OneTreePlanted improves our air quality, reduces smog and combats the negative effects of pollution on human health.

3. Trees Mitigate Climate Change – OneTreeplanted benefit 3

Trees are a powerful tool in the fight against climate change as they absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in their leaves, branches, and trunks. This process, known as carbon sequestration, helps to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is a major contributor to global warming. By planting more trees, we can increase the amount of carbon sequestration, helping to mitigate the effects of climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


4. Trees Help to Reduce Soil Erosion – OneTreeplanted benefit 4

Trees play an important role in preventing soil erosion, as their roots help to hold soil in place. This is particularly important in areas where soil erosion is a problem, such as on hillsides or near rivers and streams. By planting trees in these areas through OneTreePlanted, we can help to stabilize the soil and prevent erosion, reducing the negative effects of erosion on the environment and human communities.

5. Trees Improve Water Quality – OneTreeplanted benefit 5

Trees are essential for maintaining the health of our waterways, as they help to filter and clean our water. Trees absorb water through their roots which helps to reduce the amount of runoff and erosion. Additionally, trees can absorb pollutants and excess nutrients from the soil, preventing them from entering waterways and causing harm to aquatic ecosystems. By planting trees in areas near waterways, OneTreePlanted helps improve our water quality and protect our aquatic habitats.


6. Planting Trees Creates Jobs – OneTreeplanted benefit 6

OneTreePlanted doesn’t just focus on the environmental benefits of planting trees. They also prioritize the social and economic benefits of tree planting for local communities. By partnering with communities, OneTreePlanted ensures that the trees are planted in areas where they will have the most impact, while also providing employment opportunities and empowering local people. This partnership with communities continues as OneTreePlanted overseas the care and nurturing of the trees they plant long-term.

7. Trees Provide a Habitat for Wildlife – OneTreeplanted benefit 7

Forests and trees are essential for wildlife, providing habitat and shelter for a wide range of species. Trees are particularly important for birds, as they provide nesting sites and food sources. By planting more trees, we can help to protect and preserve wildlife habitats, ensuring that species are able to thrive and survive.

The Problem we Face – ONETREEPLANTED

While the benefits of planting trees are clear, the scale of the problem is also clear. Deforestation and the destruction of forests continue to be a major problem worldwide, with an estimated 18 million acres of forest lost each year. All is not lost! Patio Guys has already funded the planting of over 2000 trees with OneTreePlanted with thousands more to come. If each small business in the USA followed Patio Guys’ lead and donated even 0.1% of their income during the month of April over 733 BILLION trees could be planted. The scale of these problems is large, but when we all contribute together even small steps can have a huge impact. Consider that over the last 8 years OneTreePlanted has already planted over 91 million trees through donors like you and me.



Planting trees is an essential part of protecting and preserving our environment. Trees provide a range of benefits, from producing oxygen and filtering air pollution to providing habitat for wildlife and mitigating the effects of climate change. So, how can we get involved in this global reforestation effort? The easiest way is to simply order a patio furniture refinish with Patio Guys during the month of April. A refinish will have your Patio Furniture looking brand new for summer, reduce furniture waste, save you money, and let Patio Guys plant a tree for each piece through our OneTreePlanted initiative.
