Please contact us for a tailored quote if your location is further than 70km from our nurseries.

*Available on request

Note: All prices exclude VAT.

 

Optional Additional Rates – All prices exclude VAT

  • Delivery and mix of proprietary compost mix: <30km – R650.00; >30km, <70km – R750.00/cubic meter.

In the case where our clients supply their own compost, a fee of R150.00 ex-VAT/cube will be charged to transport and mix the compost with existing soil for backfilling of the planting hole.

  • Any and all requirements are assessed per site and will be discussed and agreed upon with you, our client, before the process begins.
  • As a rule, we do not remove excess soil from the planting site, as it can be beneficial for your newly improved garden. In exceptional cases we can agree to remove soil at a minimum of R650.00/cubic metre.
 
Conditions and Further Information
  • We do not undertake to dig planting holes for your new trees. Rather we ask that you take care of the digging based on the specifications that we provide. However, if you’d prefer that we dig the holes, please see rates here.
  • To handle and plant one 250-litre tree requires a minimum of 5 men, more if the terrain is difficult. If planting sites are not within close proximity (20m) to a vehicle access point, and/or situated on steep slopes, and/or up or down steps, a costing specific to the site will be quoted.
  • Tree delivery and installation takes place within 7 working days from date of order, except for 3000-litre trees and larger, which will be arranged on an individual basis with you.
  • If immediate delivery is required (less than 7 working days lead time), the following rates are applicable for bag size 250- to 1,000-litres: normal rates (as above) x 1.5.
  • Any bag that is larger than 250-litres requires a crane to plant.
  • In exceptional cases, due to an individual tree being much larger than the norm for its bag size, delivery and installation will be charged at the rates applicable to the bag that is listed next on size chart. 
  • Planting holes not dug to our specifications will be charged for at R600.00/hour to complete.
  • Staking of trees: Due to the stem diameter (thickness) of our tree stems, trees generally don’t require staking. Under certain circumstances (very tall trees and very windy/exposed sites), it may be necessary to anchor trees by installing staking during the first growing season. Each installation is assessed on its own merits to determine whether staking is required.

 

For trees with heights up to 15 metres, crown widths up to 8 metres and weights of up to 10 tonnes, the loading, transportation and installation becomes a project requiring proper planning, preparation and individual costing. 

During transport, our extra-large trees are clamped and stored in unique loading and transportation structures on low bed trucks, require abnormal load permits, and in some cases, road closures. The delivery and installation of one tree can easily take two days to complete.
