For the second year, I will be shipping Christmas trees direct to customers. Yes, I said Christmas trees. They are six foot noble firs which only grow in the Pacific Northwest. They are shipped fresh, hours after they are harvested and arrive in 1-5 days depending on where the customer lives. They are about as fresh a tree you can get unless you cut yours yourself.
The rules of shipping outlined in previous posts still apply –
- Protect the contents
- Limit the size and weight of the package
- Use the right carrier
I will be using FedEx Home Delivery to ship trees baled with twine, encased in slightly-ventilated plastic and packaged in a custom box. It will arrive with a stand, starter light set, wreath, or other optional accessories if they are ordered by the customer.
