From groceries to laundry detergent to prescription drugs, seemingly anything can be delivered to your front door.
So it shouldn't come as a surprise that a pair of New York-based entrepreneurs using a FreshDirect-business model for Christmas trees is now expanding.
You can dispense with schlepping to a tree lot and arriving home exhausted only to wrangle with a wobbly tree stand and crooked skirt. Tyler's Trees' staff—or "elves," as they call themselves—will do it all for a flat fee, starting at $139 for a 5-footer. The price includes delivery, installation, and a stand and skirt.
"We make sure it's perfect on the center line, put it into fresh water, and it's ready to go," said co-founder Tyler Kupper. "All you have to do is put lights on and ornaments, and you're done."
And if you'd rather not untangle lights and fuss with glass ornaments, decoration services start at $129.
"We employ a professional decorator who has experience doing storefronts," said Tyler's Trees' other co-founder, Brian Millman. The personalized trimming services are sold out for this holiday season, though.
