Tilhill Forestry sponsors APF

(Tilhill Forestry, Alcester, Warwickshire, August 2016) – Tilhill Forestry will be exhibiting at the APF (stand A6, 7, 8) together with parent company, BSW. The show is the UK’s largest forestry, woodland and arboricultural exhibition and takes place on 15th, 16th and 17th September at Ragley Estate, Warwickshire. The show will be celebrating its 21st anniversary this year.

The location of the Tilhill Forestry/BSW stand, right by the entrance, means that you won’t fail to notice the glamping pod that will be a key feature this year. The staff of Tilhill Forestry and BSW will be on hand to welcome visitors with a hot or cold beverage and a chance to have a chat to the forestry and glamping pod specialists.

The Timeless Timber Glamping Pod is beautifully crafted using home-grown timber and provides a long-term, low-cost, low-maintenance revenue stream. The pod design is such that you can even place them on land that is uneven or unusable, which brings the opportunity to generate income from previously dormant land.

Timeless Pods are made by Timeless Timber Limited which is owned by BSW Timber limited, the UK's largest integrated forest products company and Tilhill Forestry’s parent company. To find out more about Timeless Timber products click here.

Tilhill Forestry Managing Director George McRobbie said: “We are delighted to be involved in APF again and to be co-sponsoring one of the most exciting events taking place at the show. We are also very pleased to have a stunning Timeless Pod on our stand which should create a great deal of interest, particularly for those interested in an additional income stream from ‘glamping’.”

Tilhill Forestry is also one of the APF’s most significant sponsors and this year is no exception. Some of Europe’s best chainsaw carvers will be competing in the Tilhill Forestry and A W Jenkinson European Chainsaw Carving Competition.
