Hailstorm damage to some of our stock
After a stretch of beautiful sunshine, the weather took a turn for the worse last week and we were hit with a rather unseasonal hailstorm. As you can see from the images, the hailstones were rather large and abundant. The fifteen minute hailstorm caused damage to buildings and to some of our trees. The image below (right) shows the damage done to our conservatory, which now has numerous holes in its roof.
Most of our trees are grown on our outdoor tree lines and although we're used to rather unpredictable weather conditions of the 'great British summer', this really was an unprecedented situation for us. You can see from the below video just how large the hailstones were:
The fields that were hit were the ones surrounding our nursery, and that’s where we grow a good number of our trees. Although some of the trees were not damaged, other varieties were hit by the hailstones and have therefore suffered damage to some of their leaves; the perforations on the leaves are purely cosmetic, but we wanted to make our customers aware of the situation. On the affected trees, you will find damage that looks like the examples in the image below:
We would like to reassure our customers that the trees will be restored to their optimum condition when new leaves shoot through. As always, our trees are covered by our 2 year guarantee policy, so you can still buy from us with confidence.
If you do have any questions or concerns then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
