It looks like Christmas tree vendors have a new major competitor this holiday season. According to reports, Amazon is set to start selling and delivering full-sized live Christmas trees.
Starting sometime in November, customers will be able to pick between various types of live trees – including Douglas firs, Norfolk Island pines, and Fraser firs. The company has sold smaller live Christmas trees last year, but this time around the trees are a whopping seven-feet tall. The price to pay for getting your favorite tree delivered to your doorstep is a little steeper than your average street vendor, a seven-foot Fraser fir going for $115.
Soon, customers will be able to custom order their tree and pick a convenient delivery date, too. Amazon will also offer buyers other holiday accessories like wreaths and garlands.
