Christmas Tree farmers team up with Student to bring The Tree Farm Online

realirishtrees comWaterford based student entrepreneur Jordan Casey has teamed up with a nationwide group of Christmas Tree farmers and growers to bring the Christmas Tree Farm online during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a profound effect on the world this year, and as a result, Christmas is also going to be extremely different. One of the most traditional and important customs surrounding Christmas is of course, The Tree.

This year, Growers and Farmers find themselves in an unprecedented and uncertain place, with Public Health measures meaning traditional pop up shops and farms may be unable to open to sell trees.

One such grower, Waterford based Derek Walsh, was determined to pivot this year and so has collaborated with Waterford based student entrepreneur Jordan Casey in curating a vast network of growers nationwide to deliver an Online Platform that brings the Tree Farm to the home.

Real Irish Trees.com is Ireland’s first and only farmer-led platform that offers Real Irish Quality Christmas Trees with Free Nationwide Delivery starting November 24th.

Real Irish Trees is truly the first of its kind and was created by a motivated network of growers who saw it necessary to pivot in what promises to be an unprecedented Christmas Period.

In aiming to temporarily move the traditional Christmas Tree farm to an online environment, the team have launched a state-of-the-art, easy to use website with a fantastic buying guide, information on local growers and a fully customisable tree selection. 3 varieties of tree: The Nordmann Fir, The Noble Fir and Fraser Fir, 9 heights from 3ft-12ft and 3 widths: Narrow, Standard and Wide.

What is truly game changing about this service is the Free nationwide delivery. The sites technology aims to support local growers by assigning Delivery addresses to the closest grower in their proximity. For example, if you buy a tree for delivery to Waterford City, you will be assigned a grower in Waterford.

Customers may also choose their delivery dates starting November 24th, and the growers are encouraging customers to pre-order their trees to avoid disappointment. The Site is: https://realirishtrees.com
