The argument between whether to get a real or fake Christmas tree comes around every year, with people divided on which option to go for. However, a new service from Hilltop Christmas Tree Farms looks set to sway things even further towards the 'real' camp with the launch of convenient home delivery for Christmas tree orders.
Decoratively speaking, there are a lot of plus points to having a real tree – the authentic look, the smell, the feel and the quality. Environmental factors are also becoming increasingly important.
Hilltop Christmas Trees is taking all these benefits and removing the logistical headache of buying a real tree with its new home delivery service and the company is running a special deal for those who like to plan ahead for the festive season.
Hilltop Christmas Tree Farms is even offering some attractive discount deals for anyone who gets their order in early.
Many people opt for a fake tree out of convenience – it is light, does not drop needles and arrives in a box, cutting out the logistical challenge of lugging home a heavier real tree.
Hilltop's home deliver service provides a solution to this problem; the family-run business, which operates across the US and Canada will deliver the tree straight to the customer’s door.
Furthermore, unlike many of the real trees available in stores, Hilltop’s trees have not been sat around for weeks or even months by the time they are bought – many real trees for sale have been chopped down as early as September. Instead, the company will only fell a tree a few days before it is sent to its new home. This means it is fresh and in perfect condition when it arrives, which also means it holds its needles for longer and looks great come the festive celebrations.
To prove its credentials when it comes to delivering Christmas trees of the highest quality, Hilltop works with other local farmers across the US and Canada to provide trees covered by a Fair Farming policy, meaning that farmers benefit from a fair deal and customers benefit from tight quality inspections.
It has also developed smart logistics so the trees are transported in specially-designed boxes within ventilated mail trucks, again ensuring trees arrive with maximum freshness, meaning they keep their scent and don’t drop needles.
Hilltop’s founder Adam Stone, who has more than 20 years of experience in the industry and the President of the National and Regional Christmas Tree Associations, commented: “Our customers have grown to value the quality of tree grown by Hilltop. While we are proud to have provided our fresh and sustainable products to the wholesale industry for a number of years, we've been looking into how we can enable more people to benefit from their very own real Christmas tree.
“After carefully building up our delivery network and ensuring our crop met the high standards our customers expect, we're now ready to roll out our service directly to customers' doors.”
Starting at $79.00 (US), customers can choose the type and size of Christmas tree they want from Hilltop. Customers can even choose from decorated wreaths and table-top trees, all delivered straight to their home at a time specified by them.
Great quality, discounted price, pain-free delivery and better for the environment: there is no reason why anyone should not go for a real Christmas tree from Hilltop this year.
Notes for Editors
Simply put, buying a real tree is far more environmentally friendly than investing in a fake one. Indeed, according to Carbon Trust, a not-for-profit environmental organisation, a six-foot fake tree has a carbon footprint more than 10 times the size that of a real tree.
