In October and November of 2016 we exported 175 No. 400L Acacia trees and 96 No. 1000L Acacias all the way to UAE, Dubai to the Nad Al Sheba Safari Park. As you can imagine, this was no easy feat! But everyone on the farm pulled together and we got this job done with the trees ready shipped in record time. All of the trees, consisting of Acacia xanthophloea, Acacia karroo, Acacia galpinii and Acacia sieberiana were loaded onto twenty-four 40ft open top containers.
In this video, Andre tells us a little bit more about the job… Transcription below:
“One of our overseas based clients contacted us, looking for some mature Acacia trees for a Safari-themed park in Dubai. The journey of these trees started about six and a half years ago when the first saplings were planted out into the nursery. As these trees grow to their full maturity, they are constantly monitored, measure, photographed and placed onto our website. The final shipment comprised of 96 1000L trees as well as 175 400L trees. These trees were then packed into open top containers and shipped off to their new home in the Middle East.”
