The Forest Book 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 book unless they choose to remain anonymous.
  • PATRON – an investment of £100 will make a substantial contribution towards my research work in this project and provide a return in the form of the published book for each Patron. This is a form of private crowdfunding without the author paying fees to one of the large crowdfunding websites. The author is in the process of enquiring about membership with the UK Crowdfunding Association (UKCFA). Investments received will be held in a business bank account and designated to this project. For full details click here.
    • All Patrons will be listed in a special dedicated page(s) at the front of the book.
    • 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 the book 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 book. Book Patrons will be listed separately at the front of the book and receive a signed copy of the book.
If you would like to leave a message for the author, please do so here.
