Bottle Tree Shipping FAQ

Shipping Bottle Trees

Our Bottle Trees are shipped in one or two pieces, depending on the tree you order.  The branches are folded up, and for your convenience in bending them down, we've included a small piece of shaping/bending pipe.  With most of our trees, we send you a couple of free gifts!  A small hanging blue bottle for your window.  You can keep a live flower in it or your twigs!  (After all, without a twig holder where do you keep your twigs?)

How Big is the Tree?

Your tree is about anywhere from 58" to 8-9' high depending on what Bottle Tree you order.  But wait, that's before you get it in the ground! The depth in which you put it in the ground determines how tall your tree will end up.

Basically, your tree should be at least 18-24" in the ground but, you can put more in the ground and make your tree shorter.

This means your tree can be as high as 6' feet high or as short as 3' foot out of the ground.

Is tree painted?

The tree is sanblasted and painted brown before it's shipped.  After a while, your tree will turn rusty.  Even a swing-set, made to be outdoors, rust after awhile.  We don't mind that because we think it looks more like a tree that way! Besides, we've learned that when your tree is up and the bottles are on the branches, that's all anybody really ever sees.  The beauty of the colored bottles!  However, you can paint it again after awhile if you want.

Just remember to clean the rust with something like mineral spirits and use a good primer and enamel paint.

Your tree will come to you painted and professionally packed, with instructions.

Thanks for your business!  We really appreciate it and we promise you'll be happy with your tree!
