Packaging procedure before you send a Christmas tree by courier service
If you buy a live Christmas tree and would like it to be delivered to your family or friends not living in the same city or even in another country, make sure you wrap and pack it thoroughly for its safe transport.
1.To start with, shake it well to get rid of loose needles.
2. Wrap the Christmas tree trunk into a net, a blanket, a carpet, bubble wrap or similar material and make sure that the branches will be tightly bundled. Fix the trunk part with ropes for additional security so it won’t move during transport.
3. In case you are arranging a potted Christmas tree delivery, water it to be properly hydrated while in transit. Cover the pot with bubble wrap or cardboard pieces and secure it properly, so no soil will get out.
4. Put so packed X-mas tree into the cardboard box and add cushioning materials all around it. Make sure that it will not move inside.
5. Close the box and seal it well with adhesive tape.
6. You can add a note “Fragile” or “Handle with care” but bear in mind the couriers are not obliged to take it into consideration.
Will my parcel be insured if I ship a Christmas tree internationally or domestically?
If you decide to ship a real Christmas tree internationally or even just to another town, take into consideration that it belongs among plants, which are among items not covered by shipping insurance. However, if you send a plastic X-mas tree via our standard shipping service the free insurance up to 200€ is already included in the prize of the service. If your plastic X-mas tree will be shipped as an individual offer, it will be covered by the CMR convention.
Experts’ advice: How can you make your live Christmas tree to last longer?
Your live Christmas tree is a giant plant, which needs enough water, especially after you got it delivered by courier service or have transported it home from the market where it had most probably been standing for sale for days or weeks. Make sure your X-mas tree is moist otherwise the needles will start drying soon. To make it last longer, use plain water. Regularly check its stand as they are usually rather small and can hold only a limited amount of water.
Additional hint: choose a good and appropriate location. Try to move your potted Christmas tree away from direct heating or a strong sunlit position.
