Tuffnells has reported a tree-mendous year for Christmas tree deliveries, after delivering thousands of real trees across the UK.
Throughout the festive season, Tuffnells works with several Christmas tree suppliers across the UK, including Bristol based, Ashridge Trees, which requires a trailer collection of trees each day in the run up to Christmas.
Scottish supplier, Kilted Christmas Trees, has also been working with Tuffnells for all its festive deliveries for six years, sending more than 1,000 trees and 8,000 wreaths through them this year alone.
Peter Birks, chief executive officer for Tuffnells, said: “Christmas is an extremely busy time of year for us especially when it comes to handling irregular freight during such a traditionally hectic season. Many of the Christmas trees we deliver are often over 10 foot long and can be quite cumbersome. However, all our trees are packed carefully in bags or shrink wrapped to save space and help with stacking, and more importantly to ensure each tree arrives in perfect condition at its destination ready to bring some festive cheer to its recipient.
“We’ve been helping Christmas tree suppliers deliver trees across the UK for many years now, but this year we have seen an even larger increase in demand for real trees compared with previous years. Over the past couple of months we’ve handled vast quantities of trees and orders are still rolling in, making this year our most successful Christmas yet.”
With last year’s deliveries topping 10,000 trees, predictions for this year are expected to exceed last year’s figures, with thousands of deliveries already made through Tuffnells’ specialist Christmas tree shipping service.
