A Guide to the Copses, Woods, and Forests of Britain
The Forest Guide


The Forest Guide is a labour of love that will take considerable time to research and write. In return for financial support from donors I’m pleased to offer some enticing perks.

To help cover the costs of research, and to support the running of this website, I am looking for financial donations from supporters and investments from future readers:

  • SUPPORTER – a donation of £10 will help towards the running costs of the project.
    • All Supporters will be acknowledged by name in the guidebook series unless they choose to remain anonymous.
  • PATRON – an investment of £100 will make a substantial contribution towards my research work in this project. In return, each Patron will receive a signed copy of a guidebook from the series. This is a form of private crowdfunding without the author paying fees to one of the large crowdfunding websites. Investments received will be held in a business bank account and designated to this project, following the UKCFA Code of Conduct.
    • All Patrons will be listed in a special dedicated page(s) at the front of the guidebook series.
    • Choose your own name, the name of a woodland if you own one, or even dedicate it to someone special as a unique gift.
    • All Patrons will receive a copy of their choice from one of the guidebook series, signed personally by the author.

If you are able, please support this project by completing the form below. Thank you.

The name of the person completing this form. Your support will be acknowledged in the book unless you indicate below that you would prefer to remain anonymous.
Please confirm whether you would like your name to be published under Acknowledgements. For example, you may choose to remain anonymous and use a different name for the Patron Name (see below).
All supporters will be acknowledged in the guidebook series. Book Patrons will be listed separately at the front of the guidebooks and receive a signed copy of the book of their choice from the series. The earlier the patronage, the more editions of the guidebooks will feature a Patron's name. Please, note it will not be possible to add a Patron/Sponsor name to a book once published.
