The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.

Ten silver birch arrived this morning! Very Healthy. Very Green. Soil, perfectly just damp, and after a phone call from you for advice, trees trimmed to encourage a tree and not a bush. Beautifully packaged in cardboard boxes named and numbered. Excellent communication and delivery in adverse Coronavirus times. Now to embark on my woodland glade vision…all in my front garden…perfectly possible. Thank you.
