The over 600 subscribers to the UKTC come from all sectors of the arboricultural industry and include amenity and utility contractors, consultants, local authority tree officers, researchers and students. Take a look at the current statistics to find out more about the UKTC members.

The UKTC is an email based discussion mailing list. Subscribers send emails to a central address and the message is then redistributed to all the other subscribers.

Advertising on the UKTC couldn't be easier. Simply apply for an obligation-free account and you can then log in to the easy to use Sponsor Control Centre to book your ads online.

The UKTC has three advertising schemes available - SponsorStandard, SponsorPlus and ListShot.

SponsorStandard

Companies may sponsor the list for a period of one week (you may, of course, sponsor as many one week periods as you wish). In return for sponsorship a plain text message of up to 7 lines of 72 characters each will be added to the end of each message sent through the list during your sponsorship period - that's an average of about 120 messages in a week. An example of a 7 line message might look like this:

In an average week your message would be seen some 66,000 times by around 550 potential customers, making this an excellent way of increasing awareness of your brand amongst arborists or pulling visitors in to your web site. Only one sponsor is allowed per week, so your message will not be lost amongst a dozen similar messages.

SponsorPlus

The SponsorPlus scheme works in much the same way as SponsorStandard but offers improved positioning of your message. With SponsorPlus your message will be inserted at the top of each message sent through the list, where you can be sure that everyone subscribed to the list will see it.

ListShot
List Shot offers companies the chance to send a single, dedicated message to all list subscribers. This message may contain any amount of information about your product or company, may be either plain text or HTML formatted, may include attachments (your catalogue in .pdf format for example) and may be up to 200kB in size.

To avoid subscribers becoming tolerant to this advertising List Shot is strictly limited to one message per week. This is an ideal way to advertise sales and promotional offers. Your whole price list can be distributed directly to the inboxes of over around 550 arboriculturists.

The fee for each message sent is currently £60.00, representing a considerable saving over the cost of a traditional mail shot to around 550 people. A number of discounts are also available (see Costs)

Isn't this SPAM?

Neither of these advertising opportunities constitutes 'SPAM' or Unsolicited Bulk Email.

The UKTC is a strictly "opt-in" list. On joining, subscribers to the UKTC agree to allow both the addition of up to 7 lines of sponsor messages to ordinary posts and up to one dedicated advertising message per week to be sent to them.
