Meet the Team
John Tunnicliffe is the founder of Woodland Bond Ltd and the brains behind the whole idea. As a cabinet maker he has built a bespoke furniture business up over 20+ years and is therefore no stranger to the beauty of wood and its many applications. John has owned his own wood for many years and has gained much knowledge and even more enjoyment from that experience. John is involved with every aspect of Woodland bond and his keen business mind has driven a very determined strategy to make this a long term, stable enterprise which offers through life support to new owners.
“The complete enjoyment and satisfaction I get from owning my own piece of British woodland has led me to believe that more people should be able to do the same. I wanted to make woodland ownership hassle free and more widely available, whilst keeping down the maintenance costs and therefore the worry. I believe Woodland Bond offers so much more than just the best value woodland package available”.
Johns talents include beekeeping and many people enjoy his locally produced honey. John and his wife Ruth have two wonderful children Sam and Lauren.
Chris Poole is the Operations Director of Woodland Bond Ltd. His military background of over 24 years in the Royal Engineers and Royal Logistic Corps prepared him well for his multi functional and very ‘hands on’ role within the company. He has been involved with Woodland Bond for the last year and has helped evolve the concept and push it forward to where it is today.
Chris spends a lot of time on site, completing various groundwork’s himself but also ensuring the close liaison and ‘day to day’ organisation of outside agencies, contractors, locals and clients. Chris is involved at all stages, from possible site identification, planning, plotting, marking, developing, sales, ongoing and future maintenance. Chris is a real outdoor enthusiast with passion for his work and the environment.
“Countryside and woodland in the United Kingdom is incredibly diverse and beautiful, whatever the weather. I love that Woodland Bond will encourage people of all ages to own, care for and most of all, get out and enjoy a piece of that land and use it for a range of outdoor pursuits. I also think it will be a huge bonus for owners to be supported by a company that cares as much as Woodland Bond does”.
A qualified mountain leader, he also enjoys family camping, travel, sports and motorcycles.
Having worked for many years in sales and marketing in both the public and private sectors, it’s great to be able to help promote something I truly believe in. Woodland Bond is a fantastic and unique opportunity for people who, like myself, love the outdoor life … and making sound financial investments. As a mum with two active young sons, it’s a pleasure to help develop a business that promotes healthy outdoor living and makes sound financial sense, while taking care of our natural environment.

For the last 21 years I have worked within the housing market and am loving the opportunnity of working in the great outdoors, getting back to nature and embracing this fantastic opportunity. Woodland Bond appealed to me in the first instance as something designed to make woodland purchase possible to those of us that time is of a premium. As a busy working Mum I could see the benefits of the Bond, allowing ‘woodland time’ to be purely ‘vacation time’…..perfect.
