Tree-mendous Service to the Vice President’s Residence in D.C.

12/12/11

Wahmhoff Farms Nursery knows a thing or two about growing award-winning Christmas trees. But when it came to shipping three trees to the vice president's residence in Washington, D.C., they turned to Holland!

As the Reserve Grand Champion at the National Christmas Tree Convention in August 2011, the Gobles, MI, nursery earned the privilege of presenting a Christmas tree to the people of the United States through its placement in the residence of Vice President Joe Biden. "It's an honor. There are a lot of great growers in the country and in Michigan," says Dan Wahmhoff, president.

Wahmhoff typically moves truckloads of trees throughout the country. "Getting three trees to Washington was a big burden. We didn't know what we were going to do. We've worked real well with Holland in the past, shipping seedlings and tree stands, and they were the first place we called. We were thrilled when Sandi Kiss came back with a solution."

On Nov. 17, three 10- and 11-foot Fraser firs were cut, banded and boxed. Holland picked up the fresh-cut trees and delivered them next day to Akron, where the shipment passed to sister company, YRC, for the remainder of the move and final delivery.

Award-winning Christmas trees deserve award-winning service. For 82 years, Holland has been delivering fast, reliable LTL service with personal attention. To bring this dedication of service to your business, visit our website or call 1-866-465-5263.
