Read Up

Welcome to the Read Up Hub, where you can find all the information you need to become a discerning tree buyer. Whilst specification details may not be the most enthralling of reading topics, we can assure you it’s time well spent. Trees of the same height or pot size can vary dramatically in quality, making it easy for unscrupulous sellers to exploit novice buyers, especially online. Taking a few minutes to learn what key specifications and quality marks to look for will ensure you get the best return on your investment.
