Foreword to our terms and conditions

The mission of Suffolk Fruit and Trees, with our website, is to enable everyone to enjoy the beauty of fruit trees in their own gardens and properties, and to benefit from the blossom and fruit that they produce. We accomplish this by supplying quality information based on our unique heritage of knowledge, developed over the course of over fifty years’ experience in the business of fruit trees. We are passionately interested in trees, and we want to ensure that all our customers can grow healthy trees that go on to become valued items in the garden. These terms and conditions apply to the paid consultancy available on this website. The information existing on the website is totally free of charge and available at all times without limitations to all web users.

These terms and conditions have been compiled in accordance with Directive 2000/31/EC on electronic commerce, Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, and Directive 2002/58/EC on the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy. However, trees differ from many other products in that they are living organisms, and so these terms and conditions incorporate the exceptions to Directive 2000/31/EC, in particular regarding order cancellation and guarantee terms, because trees require correct treatment to keep them in good health.

We would like to underline that we are tree people; we like working with trees, and with people who want to grow trees, and so we infinitely prefer solving any problems that may arise by giving you the benefits of our many years’ experience in tree growing. We prefer common sense, goodwill and normal communications, rather than paragraphs of small print!
