Potted Christmas Tree

potted Christmas tree

This section is for service in Portland & Eugene Oregon.

What if there was a company that delivered full size potted Christmas trees, then picked them up after New Years and planted them to grow old in parks and watersheds? Well, The Original Potted Christmas Tree Company is doing It! We make it convenient. You get an actual living tree, you don't have to transport it, or plant it in your yard after each Christmas. Our clients potted Christmas trees are planted to grow old after New Years at schools, churches, parks- to grow old. But wait, there's more! Potted Christmas trees are the freshest because, what's fresher than alive huh, huh? A real nice thing about these potted trees is their Natural shape- there's no going back to a cone shape tree! Since potted trees are tough to transport they need to be delivered. Since potted trees are delivered they are ordered online. Just scroll down down and down on this page, fill out the order form and pay on this page of our site with PayPal, or mail a check. When your tree arrives right next to your front door, just slide it inside. After New Years, just slide it outside your door. We pick it up and it gets planted to grow old. Imagine all the special feelings of Christmas with something new- an actual tree! The best thing about a potted tree is a feeling like, "Wow it's an actual tree inside my house, it's alive and with lights and decorations, and will soon be planted to be part of the environment- rained on, cleaning the air, home to birdies, to someday be a hundred feet tall, wowww..." Scroll down down down on this page to make a tree show up at your door :)

This section is for if you don't live in Portland, or Eugene Oregon. (We only serve Portland and Eugene Oregon.)

Feel free to check out our site- we are in Oregon but anyone anywhere can do potted Christmas trees. Your Christmas tree could be planted in your local park by your local parks department. Our site has information on how you can conveniently have a full size potted tree, wherever you live, on this page.

If you might want to franchise our business, there's a great market for potted Christmas trees. Each year around 50 million xmas trees are sold, but only a small percentage are potted, because they need to be delivered. Imagine running a small potted xmas tree delivery business in your town. Do you live near where farmers grow conifer trees for xmas trees or the landscape market? W
e offer franchising on this page.

Eugene / Springfield delivery area:
 Our delivery area is, "not on the far edges of the metro area."

General info: We put your tree right next to your door, you just slide it inside. You don't have to be home for delivery. If your tree needs to go up or down any stairs inside your home, definitely get a 6' tree, (the 7.5' ones aren't supposed to be lifted). If you live in an apartment / condo with a shared secure main door, sorry, this year we aren't making special arrangements. If you'd like a tree earlier than 12/14 5pm, sorry, this year we aren't making any special arrangements. As far as the most aromatic tree, just pinch a few needles each day, of any tree, to make your tree 'smell more' (doesn't harm tree).

Tree kinds and sizes: Tree selection is on the internet because we deliver. We ask for three choices to get an idea of what kind of tree you want, we do our best to get you your first choice tree. Scroll down down down to see tree photos. Our trees have a more natural shape than the traditional dense / sheered / cone shape. The tip of the tree height is from floor to the top of the tip, (tip height includes pot height which is about one foot). All our trees fit under any ceiling. Tip of 7.5' tree is 7' to 7' 9" high. Scroll down down down to see photos of trees and branches. Thank you woohoo!

Tree kinds:
Portland- Douglas fir Natural rescued native, Douglas fir dense rescued native, Norway spruce, Serbian spruce.
Eugene- lots of different kinds but only Douglas fir dense & Norway spruce in common with Portland.

Easy care of your living Christmas tree:
The lights that are small, (pencil erasure size) are perfect. Just water a pint or two every day. When not at home, turn the heat down as low as practical. Put It near a window if possible. If a heating vent is near the tree
, cover and insulate the vent. If you heat your home with a wood stove, your tree won't be healthy enough for planting. No: tinsel, flock (fake snow) or big (thumb size) lights.

Thank you woohoo!
