Throughout the month of October we have been helping to save the environment by giving a treat to every one of our customers who have an installation this month.
Our customers are able to plant this tree where they wish to help to save the environment. These trees will then grow and attract wildlife of different kinds from butterflies to squirrels. We have been offering different varieties of trees to our customers this month from Field Maples to Hawthorns, Rowan and Common Alders. Please see below to read more about these wonderful trees.
