Fire Maples are deciduous trees of eastern North America. They range from the Lake of the Woods on the border between Ontario and Minnesota, east to Newfoundland, south to near Miami, Florida, and southwest to Louisiana. Our rocking chairs, however; are constructed from Fire Maple Trees indigenous to the beautiful state of Tennessee. As the name implies, it is characterized by its brilliant deep scarlet foliage in autumn.
2) How much is the cost of shipping?
For local customers within 30 miles of Paris, Texas, we will deliver your rocker to your front door for FREE! For all other customers, the cost of shipping is dependent upon the distance the carrier must travel to your home and the weight of the product ordered. We will research to find the cheapest shipping rate for you and then include it in the PayPal invoice that we send you.
3) How do you ship the chairs?
Because our rocking chairs are fully assembled before leaving here, we must ship them using “freight shipping”. Freight delivery means your product will be shipped and arrive via a large truck. Freight delivery is used when the size and/or weight of the product is too large to ship using small package carriers (UPS, FedEx).
