Treeline takes on Acorn Fencing and Timber Supplies

Over the last few weeks we have been busy here at Treeline clearing space, re-surfacing yards and preparing for the intake of a large stock of fencing and timber supplies from Acorn Fencing.  

Hamish Dykes started selling fencing materials to neighbouring farmers, fencing contractors and local residents in the West Linton area many years ago.  In the last few years he was joind by Colin Thomas who ran the yard and looked after their many customers.  Both Treeline and Baddinsgill Farm have been customers since the start, with Treeline purchasing large quantities of fencing materials from Hamish and Colin for their many woodland esablishment projects.  When Colin took the decision to retire Hamish was concentrating on his core farming enterprise and so wanted to find a new home for Acorn Fencing, while being keen to keep the business local and so ensure continuity of service to their customers.  After some discussion it was agreed that Treeline would take on the business and move the operation to their yard at Baddinsgill Farm.

The first materials arriving - fence posts and strainers for stock and deer fencing

Next step was creating the space to store the many materials that we would stock.  Old areas were cleared and re-surfaced to give clean dry stacking space.  Space was cleared in one of our sheds for wire products and Postcrete that are better stored inside and a container was bought for storing sundries and small items.

Finally we bought a forklift for moving materials around and a new trailer to help with delivery requirements.  Colin and Hamish helped hugely moving stock from their yard to ours before sending out an email to their customers informing them of the change, ready for us to start trading on the 1st August.  

We are hugely excited about this new venture and integrating it into our existing operations, supplying customers old and new and building on what Hamish started all those years ago.
