Do you love having a live Christmas tree but hate the thought of chopping one down or having to figure out where to plant the potted tree once the holiday is over? Apparently, you’re not alone; hence The Living Christmas Co., which rents out live trees in large pots ready for you to add festive holiday decorations. Founder of The Living Christmas Co., Scott Martin, said the idea for the company came to him after working in nurseries during his teenage years, where he saw the beautiful trees he delivered to homes for the holidays become curbside refuse. Based in California, The Living Christmas Co. has a staff of helpful “elves” who will deliver a live tree in a pot right to your doorstep. Then when the holiday is over they’ll pick it back up and return it to the “North Pole”, where it can continue to thrive and grow until next year. All you have to do is remember to water your rental tree, and the “elves” will help you to do that with weekly e-mail reminders. And what happens to those trees that eventually outgrow their rentability? They get put out to “pasture” of course, where they’re planted and can spend their remaining years helping the environment.
