Business Opportunities

Investing in trees

Working with Community Forests is a great way to meet your company’s CSR objectives and deliver meaningful social and environmental benefits in your area.

The CFT helps your business to get involved in various projects by:

Sponsoring a Forest Project

For as little as £2,000 you can sponsor a forest project and make an investment in the future. Greener public benefit the whole community and are known to stimulate economic growth.

Types of projects include:

  • Planting ‘street trees’ in residential and town/city centres
  • Improving school grounds
  • Bulb & wildflower planting
  • …and many more

We will recognise your sponsorship with a plaque or similar marker, as well as providing a publicity package and photo-call.

Please contact us to find out what projects are currently available.

Product planting

One creative way to sponsor CFT is through a rolling annual agreement tied to the sales of a particular product – enabling your company to plant a tree for every product sold.

It’s a great opportunity to make a real difference to your local area by increasing tree cover, helping tackle climate change and develop high quality green infrastructure.

To help us achieve this you can make a £10 per tree donation for a minimum of 300 trees:

Booking a Green Corporate Day

Getting your team out into the open-air on one of our tailor-made team building events is a good way to enhance staff morale and development through practical environmental tasks.

Your Green Corporate Day package will enable staff to develop new skills, encourage team building and experience a day of hands-on and fulfilling tasks in a stimulating outdoor environment.

With more than 15 years experience, The Mersey Forest and City of Trees are fully equipped to lead a day of activities that meet the needs of your team and your business.

Price per person starts at around £50 (+VAT) for the day. For further information & availability please contact us.
