Professional Horticultural Services
Thank you for your interest in Majestic Trees and the services we offer to the professional horticulturist. Whether you are a garden designer, landscape contractor or landscape architect, we are here to help you in whatever capacity you require. We believe our trees are special and so is our service, and would love you to experience the Majestic difference. Here are just a few of the advantages we can offer:
Trees of exceptional quality, mainly grown in AirPots for superior root systems
Our trees have roots! We all know that it is very tempting to buy the cheapest tree, often as a rootball that has 70% of its roots cut off! This is okay if you are planting whips, but a false economy when planting mature trees, which require a robust root system to support their growth. You may discover too late that your 'economical' rootball or bare root trees take years to establish or fail to do so at all. Is it really worth the risk of disappointing your client when you can choose AirPot grown trees which guarantee a fabulous, fibrous root system?
Online trade information and availability
We are proud to offer our trade customers twenty four hour access to trade pricing and availability online, not just as static downloadable pdf stocklists, but also dynamically within our award-winning treefinder interactive stock search when logged in to our website as a My Majestic Professional user. You can shortlist varieties of interest using our ‘Favourites’ facility too (see below).
Online access to 1500+ tree images and 500 variety profiles in a format that is easy to share with your clients
We completely understand the importance of images when it comes to helping a non-professional choose trees! That's why our treefinder stock search facility contains over 1500 images of trees in various seasons and states of maturity, along with concise overview profiles for over 500 varieties. It means you can share your suggestions with your clients by simply emailing links to our online profiles of the varieties you are proposing –or take it a step further! Create, customise and forward on beautifully formatted favourites lists for your clients by registering online for a My Majestic Professional account (see below).
A visitor-friendly nursery open 6 days per week
Visit any time, Monday to Saturday. You are welcome to make an appointment prior to your visit, although we do pride ourselves in the personal service we are able to provide even on a walk-in basis. With the largest on-site nursery sales team in the UK, it is very rare that there is not someone able to assist you.
Unlike most large-scale tree nurseries in the UK, our nursery is designed to be visitor friendly, complete with directional signage and demonstration gardens. Each of our trees is conveniently labelled with a very clear and detailed description, as we can hardly expect even our professional customers to be familiar with all of the 500+ varieties we stock! Each batch of trees is coded with a batch number, which appears on the label and allows us to trace the performance of that batch throughout its lifetime. No prices appear on labels; you simply cross reference the batch number on the label with your professional price list as you walk around.
A reservable garden room should you wish to meet with clients here
Should you wish to bring your client to view the trees and make a selection, we offer for your complimentary use a private garden room overlooking our Courtyard Garden, complete with gourmet coffee machine. This room can be booked for an hour at a time.
Personal service from an experienced and knowledgeable team
Whilst internet support is extremely important, it is no substitute for personal service. We have four full-time, qualified horticulturist advisors, two of whom are qualified garden designers, available to help by phone, email or in person at the nursery. They will be happy to steer you in the right direction when it comes to choosing your trees, and will happily email up-to-date pictures of the exact specimens you are considering from our nursery.
Personally select your specimens
We appreciate the importance of being able to personally inspect and select trees for your project, particularly when you are planting mature trees. We are a specialist grower, not a mass producer, so when you place your order, rest assured we won't be simply sending out a 'picker' to collect the next tree in the row. We warmly encourage our customers to personally select their own specimens within each batch. And if you are unable to visit us, one of our horticulturally trained advisors will personally select and tag the best tree on your behalf, based on your specifications, and will tell you if they feel it is unsuitable. We are only interested in long-term relationships, built on trust and mutual benefit.
Tree sourcing services
We pride ourselves in stocking a wide range of varieties and sizes so you can personally inspect and select your trees, but that doesn’t mean to say that if you are looking for trees we do not currently have on our nursery we couldn’t source them. We have an extensive network of suppliers with whom we are in constant contact, so it is well worth considering our ‘Tree sourcing’ services if your project has a reasonable lead time.
Comprehensive delivery and planting services, including our award-winning ‘Delivery to Tree Pit’ service
We understand that our broad spectrum of trade customers have differing areas of expertise, so offer a flexible range of services to dovetail into our customers' planting plans as required. Some options include:
Loading for collection. You may wish to collect your trees. We are more than happy to prepare in advance stock you have purchased, preferably with 24 hours notice. We will assist you in loading the trees or, if you use a common carrier, will load the trees for you.
Delivery to kerb. This is a popular service we offer, as unlike many other nurseries, we have our own custom built trucks to carry your delivery. The huge benefit of this is that you do not have to find or provide the equipment to offload the trees, as the truck comes equipped as required, most likely with a truck mounted telescopic fork lift. Furthermore, our rear wheel steer artic trailers all come with lifting and sliding roofs if you need to crane the trees into their planting positions.
‘Delivery to Tree Pit’ service. Many of our customers have the expertise and manpower to prepare tree pits, but lack the specialised equipment to offload and place very large trees into them. For these customers we offer a very competitively priced delivery service which includes offloading and positioning of each tree in its pit. An important feature of this service is that Majestic Trees assumes liability for any breakages or damage which might occur during the fragile moving and positioning process.
Complete planting service with establishment guarantee. One of our most popular services, even with landscape contractors, is our complete planting service whereby we dig the tree pits, provide the equipment to deliver the trees, anchor the trees, do the backfilling and take the muck away. Our charges are very competitive and this service comes with our unique ‘establishment warranty’.
In-house AfterCare service.
Last but not least, we offer the peace of mind of an in-house AfterCare service. Service visits can be booked on an occasional basis as required, or on a contractual basis, in which case we check the trees once per month during the growing season. When provided on a contractual basis, our aftercare service includes an extended warranty lasting the duration of the contract.
To Register as a Professional Customer, including an online My Majestic Professional account’
Registering as a Majestic Trees Professional customer has never been easier. In most cases all that is required is a company website address (or two trade references) and contact details. The quickest way to register is to create a My Majestic account, ticking the ‘trade user’ box. This will enable you to start creating favourites list straightaway on standard settings, with your professional user settings activating upon approval, which is usually in 1-2 working days.
Alternatively, you can complete our standard trade application form by clicking here, or download a pdf for posting by clicking here. If you apply by either of these methods you will receive your My Majestic Professional log in details with your approval confirmation, usually within 1-2 days of our receipt of your application.
Credit facility option
For regular and long established customers, we do offer 30 day accounts for credit worthy horticultural-related businesses on completion of a credit application. Please either download it on-line or request a copy of the application at the nursery, and upon its submission, allow 21 days for a decision though this timescale is highly dependent on your references and bank expediting our enquiries.
