To our Forest Roots community.

We hope this finds you well and raring to go for 2022.

Unfortunately our year has started with a bit of a setback - namely back to back burglaries of the Forest Roots shop on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

The team would just like to inform you that as a result of this, we have to temporarily close the physical store due to the damages caused and the security risk.

Our team will still be working from home however, and happily assist our regular clients with all their Forest Roots needs. We have everything in stock and will arrange delivery (within Sedgefield) or collection from our store location.

Please send your orders/enquiries via WhatsApp or email - 079 517 3254 or [email protected]

We apologize for any incovenience this may have caused, we hope to be up and running soon.

Thank you for the support and understanding.
