How to support Trees for Reading

Ways your organisation can get involved with Trees for Reading

1) Pledging ongoing revenue

We welcome offers of ongoing support for Trees for Reading. For example you could pledge a proportion of the money you make from a new revenue-generating initiative, such at Thames Lido’s car parking charge, or donate a percentage of the sale price of certain products. 

In return, you’ll get: 

  • plaques to mark the trees planted with your support
  • a wooden plaque to display in your workplace, once your first tree has been planted 
  • your company name included on our interactive tree map, for each of the trees you fund
  • a sponsorship badge to add to your website and use in your marketing materials

The promise of ongoing income to support the initiative will help us plan for the future and ensure its continuity.

2) Sponsoring a tree

The standard price to sponsor a single tree is £490. That includes: 

  • a plaque to mark the tree and one for your workplace 
  • your company name included on our interactive tree map
  • a sponsorship badge to add to your website and use in your marketing materials

Some of our projects may involve sourcing specific trees which will cost more or less, and we can come up with bespoke sponsorship arrangements in those cases. 

3) Making a one-off donation

You can donate any amount you like to support our tree-planting efforts. Once we’ve gathered enough contributions from businesses, we’ll plant a tree and mark it as having been funded by the local business community. 

We’ll list your organisation on our website as a contributor to our corporate tree-planting fund. 

4) Offering land or volunteers

If you have land available where trees could be planted, we’d love to work with you to agree a planting scheme. You can put money towards the trees and we will mark them as having been funded by your business, or we can arrange alternative funding for them. 

From time to time there may also be opportunities for staff volunteering, for example to help with caring for the trees. 

We’ll acknowledge your support on our website and on social media.
