Bit of history: We have here, a little bit of interest: The Bristol Whitebeam is one of the rarest trees in Britain, found only on cliffs in the Avon Gorge and nowhere else in the world. Amazing…..
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.
