This section is for service in Portland & 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! We make it convenient- 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- 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 going back to a cone shape tree! 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 :)


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.

Each year around 50 million xmas trees are sold, but only a small percentage are potted. Imagine running a small potted xmas tree delivery business in your town, if you live near where farmers grow conifer trees for xmas trees or the landscape market. W
e offer franchising on this page.

General info: You don't have to be home for delivery, we put your tree right next to your door, you just slide it inside. We ask for you to choose three kinds of trees when you order, because we need flexibility on what we buy from tree growers and offer to the planters. IThe 6' and 7.5' tree sizes are the same price. We can provide trees for events, from $70 per tree, email us to discuss. If your tree needs to go up or down any stairs inside your home, definitely get a 6' tree, the 7.5' ones are considerably heavier and can't be picked up easily at all (clients just slide them). 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 12/14 5pm, sorry, this year we aren't making any special arrangements. For businesses- sorry, this year we aren't offering big trees priced from $400 to $1,500. Feel free to email us.

Tree kinds and sizes: Tree selection is on the internet because we deliver. The list below shows the kinds of trees we offer this year, it will stay the same as we sell out. Your three choices let us know the kind of tree you want (because we can only provide trees the planters order right up until delivery), so have three tree kinds in mind before ordering. All our trees have a more natural shape than the traditional dense 'sheered' cone shape. The tip of the tree height is from floor to very top, (tip height includes pot height which is about one foot). All our trees fit under any ceiling. Tip of 7.5' tree is 7' to 7' 9" high.

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!
