SEATTLE – Is your family looking to buy a new Christmas tree this year? Well, Amazon has you covered.
The online shopping giant will sell and deliver full-size, real Christmas trees this holiday season. It will sell a wide selection of real trees ranging from two to seven feet tall. The collection includes Frasier Fir, Balsam Fir, Black Hills Spruce and Norfolk Island Pines.
Some of the trees will be eligible for Prime shipping, meaning members of its $119 yearly subscription program will get two-day shipping.
The National Christmas Tree Association says it welcomes Amazon to the Christmas party. A spokesman said they see it as another option for consumers to buy a real tree to make their Christmas special, which is better for the environment than an artificial one and supports local tree growers.
