Preparation is important when planting large trees. We would advise you to take delivery when you are able to plant straight away, i.e. with planting areas excavated ready to receive your trees. We can advise you on the size of hole to dig depending on your choice of tree size.
When our trees are dormant, between October and April, they are easily stored on site but must be kept upright as, if they are laid flat, rabbits can nibble the crowns overnight. During the growing season, between May and September, our trees are in full leaf so need to be planted and watered the same day or very shortly after delivery.
For best results please refer to our planting demonstration on how to plant Barcham Trees.

The logistics of tree deliveries
Barcham have been delivering container grown trees to all parts of the UK since the early 90’s and during that time have developed an expertise in ensuring that trees are received by customers when required and in perfect condition. While not owning a vehicle fleet Barcham has built up a strong relationship with a small group of haulage companies who have developed a deep knowledge of how to handle container grown trees.
The trees are transported on Lorries that range from 10 ton rigid Lorries to articulated, curtain sided Lorries. The type of lorry can be selected to tailor to particular customer requirements, and thus it is important to make the Sales team at Barcham Trees aware of any specific requirements and discuss options prior to placing your order and receiving delivery.
It is important to be aware that the lorries we use do not possess any unloading equipment and whilst we will unload your trees to kerbside or nearest possible access point, the drivers are unable to move trees once unloaded.
An enhanced delivery service is available with trees off loaded by crane which can be particularly useful where space is restricted at the delivery site, please discuss specific requirements with our Sales team who will be happy to provide you with a quote.
Please mention any specific delivery requirements, including dates and times in the comment section of the checkout and we will endaevour to do our best to work within these parameters wherever possible.
If not ordered as part of a tree order, the following Accessories will be posted out to you by courier to arrive within 3-5 working days of the order being placed:
- Hydration Bag
- Long Life Fertiliser
- Rabbit Guard
- Time for Trees
- Barcham Secateurs
- Barcham MEYBest Folding Saw
Planting kits will still need to be delivered by one of our lorries, so this can still take up to 15 working days.
Please contact us to discuss express delivery options.
