Dear [Full Name of Receiver]:

This letter of request for permission to purchase a new computer for my work in the office as the one I am using now is outdated. There are many new functions available today that I am not able to use. 

Also, the time it takes to access websites and documents is so long that It makes my job much more difficult and wastes time. 

I believe I could produce letters and bulletins much faster and with better formatting if I had the latest technology. I think the documents would look more professional and send a better image of the company. 

A new computer with new useful applications will make my work easier and quicker, and the results will be much better. For example, video conferencing with my current computer is almost impossible. 

It’s slow and often the sound is unclear. Kindly, approve my request for the purchase of a new computer as soon as possible, so I can start being more productive. 

Your prompt action in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Yours Sincerely,

RE: Proposal for Planting Trees at [ADDRESS]

Dear [Name of Relevant Person]:

I am sending this letter of request for permission to plant 20 trees in the vacant lot that is located at [ADDRESS]. 

The lot is next to the high school and the class would like to beautify the area. The lot has been vacant for the past 15 years and has become a dumping ground for trash. The city owns the property.

Our class proposes to:

  • Clear all the trash from the lot
  • Prepare the ground for planting
  • Plant 20 trees of different species
  • Water and maintain the trees for the next three years

The father of one of the students owns the landscaping business, [NAME OF BUSINESS], and his employees will prepare the ground for planting after the students have cleared away all the trash. 

The students have their own shovels and spades. If [Name of City] would like to donate the trees, it would be most welcome.

Otherwise, we will receive 20 donated trees from the locality. We would like to start the project in early June of this year, so it can be completed during the summer vacation.

If you would like any more information, I can be reached at Phone Number or Email Address. 

Thank you for your consideration of the Tree Planting Proposal.
