Amazon will bring a 7-foot-tall Christmas tree to your doorstep starting today

You likely have fond memories of searching row after row of trees to find the perfect one to cut down and bring home during the holidays. Well, Amazon wants to literally cut into that market and insert itself into your annual routine. Starting today, the company will start sending out real, 7-foot-tall Christmas trees that will ship directly to you.

The trees are available now on Amazon’s massive marketplace. Buyers will be able to decide between Douglas firs, Norfolk Island pines, and a variety of other choices. Prices on the trees, grown by local growers in North Carolina and Michigan, may vary based on size and type. ABC News reported the trees will range from $20 for a Charlie Brown-like tiny tree to $110 for a full-sized one.

In addition to the trees, you’ll be able to add a $50 wreath to the order or a $25 red-leafed plant that comes with decorative candy cane dressing in the soil.

Amazon will reportedly try to keep the decorations as fresh as possible while shipping them across the country. Trees will be shipped within 10 days of being cut down and the company expects they will survive the shipping process just fine, even though they’ll be transported without water.

The decorations will arrive on your doorstep in a standard Amazon box. And of course, some of the trees will be available for Prime shipping in case you’re in a real rush to add some holiday cheer to your home. When it comes to getting rid of the tree, though, you’re on your own.

The sale of 7-foot trees in a variety of options marks an expansion of Amazon’s offerings last year, when the company sold 3-foot-tall trees to its customers. “Given the popularity among customers, we increased the assortment,” the company told the Associated Press.

According to the National Christmas Tree Association, online Christmas tree sales aren’t really a threat to the old-fashioned method of tracking down a fresh tree at a farm. The organization said online orders only accounted for about 1 or 2 percent of the more than 27 million trees sold last year, per The AP. But knowing Amazon, the company will push the trees as hard as possible in hopes of disrupting yet another industry.
