The Original
Potted Christmas
Tree Company

potted Christmas tree

This section is for service in Portland, Eugene & Bend Oregon.

What if there was a company that delivered 7' tall Christmas trees, alive in pots, then picked them up after New Years and planted them to grow old in parks and watersheds? Well, The Original Potted Christmas Tree Company is doing It! We make it convenient. You get an actual living tree, you don't have to transport it, or plant it in your yard after each Christmas. After Newyears, our clients potted Christmas trees are planted at schools, churches, parks. But wait, lol, there's more!

Potted Christmas trees are the freshest because, what's fresher than alive huh, huh? A real nice thing about these potted trees is their Natural shape- there's no going back to a cone shape tree! Since potted trees are tough to transport they need to be delivered. Since potted trees are delivered they are ordered online. Just scroll down down and down on this page, fill out the order form and pay on this page of our site with PayPal, or mail a check. When your tree arrives right next to your front door, just slide it inside. After New Years, just slide it outside your door. We pick it up and it gets planted to grow old. Imagine all the special feelings of Christmas with something new- a (real) tree! The best thing about a potted tree is a feeling like, "Wow it's an actual tree, and it's inside my house! It's breathing, with lights and decorations, and will soon be planted to be part of the environment- rained on, cleaning the air, home to birdies, to someday be a hundred feet tall, wowww..." Scroll down down down on this page to make a 7' tree show up at your door :)


This section is for if you don't live in Portland, or Eugene Oregon. (We only serve Portland and Eugene Oregon.)

Feel free to check out our site- we are in Oregon but anyone anywhere can do potted Christmas trees. Your Christmas tree could be planted in your local park by your local parks department. Our site has information on how you can conveniently have a full size potted tree, wherever you live, on this page.

If you might want to franchise our business, there's a great market for potted Christmas trees. Each year around 50 million xmas trees are sold, but only a small percentage are potted, because they need to be delivered. Imagine running a small potted xmas tree delivery business in your town. Do you live near where farmers grow conifer trees for xmas trees or the landscape market? W
e offer franchising on this page.

2016 info

When to order: It's not too early or late to order. Ordering sooner rather than later is a better selection of trees. You can order right up till xmas eve (if we don't sell out).

Prices:
$95- we deliver and pick it up.
$115- if we deliver and you keep your tree.


How long you would have your tree: You'd have your tree inside your home between Thursday 12/15/16 by 5pm, and Monday 1/2/17 pm. (18 day rental is so your tree is healthy for planting.)

Portland delivery area: 97201, 97202, 97203, 97204, 97205.  97206- but not south of Flavel St, 97209.  97210- but not north of Vaughn St, 97211, 97212, 97213, 97214, 97215, 97217, 97218.  97219- but not south of Taylors Ferry Rd, 97221.  97223- but not south of Taylors Ferry Rd, 97225, 97227.  97229- we'll contact you if there's a delivery fee because it's a huge area, 97232, 97239. (If you don't see your zip code there'd be a delivery fee, to cover our costs of a big truck going to your place twice with two workers, of at least 20$.)

Bend delivery area- Not too far towards the edges of town.

Eugene / Springfield delivery area:
 Our delivery area is, "not on the far edges of the metro area."


General info: We put your tree right next to your door, you just slide it inside. You don't have to be home for delivery. If your tree needs to go up or down any stairs inside your home, definitely get a 6' tree, (the 7.5' ones aren't supposed to be lifted). (We do have a few 6' trees, just order a 7.5' and write us a note- we'll confirm you are getting a 6' tree.) If you live in an apartment / condo with a shared secure main door, sorry, this year we aren't making special arrangements. If you'd like a tree earlier than 12/15 5pm, sorry, this year we aren't making any special arrangements. As far as the most aromatic tree, just pinch a few needles each day, of any tree, to make your tree 'smell more' (doesn't harm tree).

Tree kinds and sizes: Tree selection is on the internet because we deliver. We ask for two choices to get an idea of what kind of tree you want, we do our best to get you your first choice tree. Scroll down down down to see tree photos. Our trees have a more natural shape than the traditional dense/sheered/cone shape. The tip of the tree height is 7' to 7' 9" above the floor, which includes the pot height which is about one foot. All our trees fit under any ceiling. Scroll down down down to see photos of trees and branches. Thank you woohoo!

Tree kinds:
7.5' Douglas fir- Natural, native, rescued from being cut 
7.5' Douglas fir- dense, native, rescued from being cut
6' Grand fir- native, rescued from being cut
7.5' Grand fir- native, rescued from being cut
7.5' Norway spruce
6' Serbian spruce
7.5' Serbian spruce

Easy care of your living Christmas tree:
Use the
lights that are small, pencil erasure size, the thumb size ones are too hot. Water only a pint a day. When not at home, turn the heat down as low as practical. Put iT near a window if possible. If a heating vent is near the tree
, cover and insulate the vent. If you heat your home with a wood stove, your tree won't be healthy enough for planting (so please don't get live trees). No: tinsel or flock (fake snow)- it's bad for wildlife after planting.

Thank you woohoo!
