As we sign off on National Tree Week 2012, I want to thank you for your very kind and helpful support in featuring and promoting coverage of Tree Week in the Hortitrends newsletter. We are delighted to say that this year’s Tree Week was a great success overall with hundreds of events taking place around the country generating a lot of positive interest and coverage for trees.
We are especially pleased with the participation by a good number of garden centres in organising events and special promotions during the week which was no doubt helped by your coverage along with the opportunity to address the attendance at the Bord Bia seminar.
The success of Tree Week would not happen without the support of people like yourself in the media who help to inspire and motivate the interest of the horticulture industry and that of the wider public and so again my thanks to you for your support of our work and for the opportunity to highlight this year’s Tree Week. It was a pleasant opportunity to meet you at the Bord Bia seminar and I look forward to making contact with you soon again.
