Amazon is actually planning on selling fresh, live Christmas trees starting in November, according to the Associated Press. The varieties include Douglas firs, Fraser firs, as well as Norfolk Island pines, as well as they will be bound as well as shipped within 10 days of being cut. Amazon said some trees will even be eligible for free Prime shipping.
The AP reported of which a 7-foot Fraser fir through North Carolina will cost $115, while a wreath is actually listed at $50. Live garlands will also be sold.
Amazon currently sells artificial trees, as well as the idea sold real trees shorter than 3 feet last season. Some larger real trees were sold on Amazon’s marketplace. This kind of year, Amazon will directly sell large, live trees for the 1st time.
the idea appears Amazon is actually hoping to cash in on the approximately 25–30 million real Christmas trees sold within the US every year, by generating the most logistically difficult (as well as most fun) part of the process — picking as well as transporting the tree — as simple as clicking “Buy right now.”
Many people tweeted of which Amazon is actually basically ruining Christmas:
Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
