Expressions Of Interest are invited for commercial marketing partnerships

We are continually looking for commercial marketing partnerships and sponsorship that meet our marketing objectives.

We have a range of events that can be sponsored and we are happy to talk to companies and organisations about innovative ways to explain who we are and what we do and promote our sites to their customers.

Our objectives are:

  • Inform people about our work
  • Raise awareness of our sites, events, activities and membership
  • Raise awareness of the importance of trees, woods and forests

We have recently worked with companies to promote our forest and activities via their websites and apps. We would be interested in hearing about other similar opportunities.
