The way I ship my tree sculpture is by using a "box within a box". If the sculpture is 8" x 8" x 8", I wire the tree onto the inside bottom of a box that is a least 10" x 10" x 10". The tree sculpture is secured into the center on the bottom of this inner box so that none of the branches ever touch any of the sides or inside top of this box. The inner box is then sealed and put into another larger outer box and bubble wrap is placed around all sides, top and bottom of the box with the tree sculpture in it. I have been told by some of my customers that boxes have arrived upside down and battered however, due to the cushioning around all sides of the inner box, the sculpture arrives safe and sound. I have shipped thousands of tree sculptures of all sizes, as far away as Japan and Egypt, using the method and I have never had any problems or any sculpture returned or damaged. Thank you for your interest in my work.
