Timed deliveries

Timed deliveries can be arranged by request (for postcode bands 1-4 (see above)). For further details and associated charges, please contact the office.

Delivery of tall/larger trees and products

The above rates apply to orders that can be safely delivered through our chosen pallet and parcel networks.

Should your order consist of tall trees and/or products that we are unable to palletise or package in a parcel, a bespoke quotation for delivery will be prepared.

Collection (by prior arrangement only)

Collections must be on a pre-agreed day as arranged with the BHT office team. Orders may be collected between 8:30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday from our premises in Snitterby, near Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.  

Please also advise the BHT office team prior to collection should there be any changes to your order.

Where possible, please provide a minimum 2 day lead time between placing your order and collection.

Due to the heightened level of business in the bare root season (November to April), we are, unfortunately, unable to ‘pick’ orders whilst you wait and without having agreed by prior arrangement your intention to collect.
