By law, we are required to collect Texas sales tax, where applicable. A€¯ Sales tax exemptions will be allowed if we have a valid and signed certificate on file.

The customer pays all freight and/or optional insurance charges.

Additional Freight Charges: The small package carriers impose additional charges if they have to make changes to your shipping information after the order has been processed. To avoid these charges, please ensure that you provide accurate information and/or confirm shipping information at the time of your phone, web or mail-in order.


The customer pays all freight and/or optional insurance charges.

Receiving Merchandise:

Upon receipt of an order, please inspect it immediately and report any discrepancies to forestbeekeeping@att.net.  Failure to do so may limit our ability to help you resolve any issues arising from transport or claims.

Replacing Merchandise:

If we make an error or send you the wrong product, please email us and we will correct the problem.  We work hard to properly package your purchase to avoid damage during shipping.  If items are damaged during shipment call us so that we can file a claim.  Glass is shipped at your risk because shipping companies will not cover damage to glass.  We do ship large quantities of glass with few problems.

Web orders are processed every business day (Monday - Friday), except on listed holidays.  Any orders placed after that time will be processed on the next business day.
