This section is for service in Portland or Eugene Oregon.

What if there was a company that delivered full size potted Christmas trees, 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. Woohoo! We make it convenient to do a Christmas tree right- an actual tree, you don't have to transport it, or plant it in your yard after each Christmas. Our clients potted trees are planted around schools, churches, parks, watersheds- to grow old. Potted trees are the freshest because, what's fresher than alive huh? A real nice thing about these potted trees is their natural shape- there's no goin back to a cone! Potted trees need to be delivered, which is nice. Since they're delivered they're ordered online. Just browse this website, fill out the order form, pay with PayPal or mail in a check. Then your tree is delivered to your door, you just slide it inside. After New Years slide it outside your home and it's picked up and planted to grow old. Imagine all the special feelings of Christmas with something new- a living tree! The best thing about a potted tree is a feeling like, "Wow it's an actual tree, alive, with decorations, lights and presents in my home and will soon be planted, part of the environment, rained on, cleaning the air, home to birdies to someday be a hundred feet tall". Woohoo right? Check out this website and maybe you'll make a tree show up at your door :)

Easy care of your living Christmas tree:
The following are the basics of care, no: tinsel, flock (fake snow) or big (thumb size) lights. The lights that are small, (pencil erasure size) are perfect. Just water a pint or two every 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.

Thank you woohoo!
