    As a Fruit, Veg and Potato Merchant Alan imported his first load of Christmas Trees in 1984. Straight away the Christmas Trees took off and before too long the company concentrated solely on these. Since then Alan has remained at the helm. Although he has passed a lot of control onto his 2 sons he still remains and oversees everything throughout the year as well as helping out with the organisation during the season. Still selling many trees Alan has customers that have stayed loyal to him since the early days.

Pete has a large, regular customer base that has built up over the years. He visits the plantations many times throughout the year to inspect the trees and check the tagging is satisfactory. During the season Pete is outside, overseeing the yard, to make sure that some sixty thousand trees are succesfully unloaded, re-palletised and reloaded for individual orders before delivery.
