You Can Now Order a Real, Full-Size Christmas Tree on Amazon
Yes, it's true. Amazon is selling three types of real, full-size trees that you can order in your pajamas from the comfort of your home.
From toothpaste to tiny homes, you can order basically anything on Amazon, and now, you can even order a full-size, freshly-cut Christmas tree that'll arrive in a box at your door ready to get adorned with lights, ornaments and decorations. Choose from Balsam fir, Black Hills spruce and Fraser fir trees up to seven feet tall.
If you want to go the farm-to-front-door route, the trees are available to ship out starting Monday, Nov. 19. Processing will take 1-2 days and, depending on your location, will take 2-5 business days to ship. Amazon told the AP the trees will come in a box without water since they'll be delivered within 10 days of getting cut down.
The convenience of a freshly cut tree showing up at your doorstep will come at a higher rate though; the full-size trees range in price from $99.99 to $109.99.
This 6 to 7-ft Balsam fir comes to your door freshly cut, boxed and double-baled with twine straight from the farm.

Amazon also offers smaller options at lower prices though. Check out Amazon's complete selection for live trees here.
You can even order a tree as part of a bundle with an Echo Dot smart speaker and a WiFi smart plug, so you're nightly routine can be as easy as, "Alexa, turn on the Christmas tree lights."
Don't let the convenience stop with having your real, fragrant tree show up at your doorstep. Easily schedule your tree lights to turn on and off at a specific time with a smart voice-controlled speaker and smart plug.

For the naysayers who will say buying a tree online takes the fun out of searching for the perfect one at a tree farm, think of all the time and hassle you'll save from not traveling back and forth to a tree farm and having to haul it home, hoping you tied it down securely. Less time looking for a tree could mean more time to decorate and gather around it with loved ones.
