Delivery Information

Information about deliveries and pricing

LIFTING AND DESPATCHING – Please note that orders are despatched in rotation. Please allow up to 4 weeks from placing your order. If your order is for a special occasion/date then please do contact us and we will try our best to accommodate.

Most seasons we are able to start the lifting season around late October and we will commence then, but only

if the season is right; we will then despatch through in rotation until late March/mid-April – weather,

of course, permitting. Please open parcels with care – in particular, all parcels containing

family trees and plum trees.

All our goods are despatched in good condition and very well packaged.

On the rare occasion that you find that our parcel has been damaged in transit please ensure

that you report this to the courier upon delivery and note any damage to outer packaging on the

couriers proof of delivery for them. Please report any damage to us within 24 hours to assist us in

making a claim. Any photo evidence would also be very helpful. Thank you for your co-operation in

this matter.


Delivery Charges

Please note that our courier is now charging a surcharge for larger parcels so if you order contains 1/2 standard trees there will be an additional £8.50 to pay per parcel. We will of course pack each parcel with the maximum amount of trees possible to keep costs down. The extra charge will not be shown at checkout but will be invoiced separately.
