Frequently Asked Questions
How long will a fresh Christmas tree last?
A Christmas Tree is a living thing and will deteriorate with time but if you follow the care instructions as laid out in our blog, your tree will last beyond Christmas Day. With proper care and the right conditions, the tree will last over a month in your home.

You do not need to be home on the day of delivery – we will leave your tree in the most secure and shaded spot we can find near your front or back door or according to your instructions provided at checkout.
