Christmas tree delivery services from Amazon, Walmart and Lowe's send a fresh-cut fir right to your door.
When it comes to preparing for the holidays, your list might seem never-ending. From making the perfect Christmas cookies to leave on neighbors’ doorsteps and shopping for gifts to decorating the house, the season goes by fast. It’s no surprise that Walmart, Lowe’s and even Amazon want to help you check off one major holiday to-do: finding the perfect Christmas tree!
These big box retailers are already offering fresh-cut Christmas tree delivery, with options of all sizes. While your ordered tree may not be quite as fresh as those you cut yourself from the farm, purchasing Christmas trees online lets you easily add on accessories: Christmas lights, tree stands, ornaments and tinsel. And you won’t have to tie your tree to the roof of your car. Here’s what you need to know about ordering fresh Christmas trees online.

Lowe’s is in on the online fresh-cut Christmas tree game too. It sells mostly Fraser, Nordmann and Douglas fir trees online. Different sizes are offered for each species ranging from 3 to 12 feet. Just like with Walmart, enter your zip code on the Lowe’s website to shop the selection available in your local store. Prices range between $50 and $2,500 depending on the size and type of tree you order. Lowe’s also sells pre-decorated live Christmas trees, though these are usually the smaller trees and may not be deliverable in your area.
Christmas tree delivery is offered by Lowe’s itself, not a third-party shipping company, which means that the tree comes directly from a shop nearby. Delivery fees are around $60—similar to appliance delivery.

How Do I Order a Fresh-Cut Christmas Tree from Amazon?
Balsam fir Christmas trees ship straight from a Quebec farm (and yes, they deliver to the United States), according to Amazon. The Christmas trees are shipped in wax-sealed cartons to trap moisture and ensure they arrive fresh. The seller picks trees that have been growing in fields for 11 years and assures the healthiest trees are cut. Looking for a Christmas wreath to go with your Christmas tree delivery? Amazon has wreaths handcrafted from fresh Maine Balsam fir trees that arrive in a red gift box.
Note that the Christmas trees don’t come with a stand, so you’ll want to order one. To keep that fir looking fresh all December long, be sure to give it plenty of water, place it away from direct heat and make sure your stand is sturdy.
