Even though Halloween is still well over a month away, it may be time to start thinking about the winter holidays—because you can buy live Christmas tress on Amazon. The mega-online retailer has announced plans to carry live Christmas trees that can be shipped to your home.
According to a report from the Associated Press, Amazon is upping its Christmas ante this year. Even though they sold live Christmas trees last holiday season, they were mostly shorter 3-foot versions. If you’re thinking, “Hey wait, I saw taller tress on Amazon last year,” you’re not wrong. Other sellers sold these tall, live trees last season through Amazon’s marketplace.

This year Amazon will sell its own Douglas firs, Norfolk Island pines and other larger live trees. The trees will be sent within 10 days of being cut down—increasing the chances that you’ll get a fresh, live tree in plenty of time for the holiday.
So how much will these trees cost? The AP reports that a seven-foot Fraser fir will run you $115. You can also get live wreaths for $50 each.
If you really, really want to get a jump on your Christmas decorating, you’ll have to wait. Amazon isn’t selling its live trees until sometime in November. Oh, you may be able to get some (but not necessarily all) shipped for free by using your Amazon Prime membership!
