Christmas Tree...Rental?

Christmas Tree...Rental?

Why buy when you can rent...Christmas trees, that is. If you're still mulling over getting a tree this holiday season, here's one option to consider: The Living Christmas Co. rents out a variety of live trees (potted with roots) and delivers your choice of tree to your door and picks it up after the holidays are over.

Post-holidays, the trees either resume growing at the nursery, get donated to a tree planting organization, or become a part of the Urban Reforestation Project. Most trees are available to rent in a seven-year span before they get planted, and the Living Christmas Co. even offers a "tree adoption" plan where you can pick one particular tree to be sent to your home every Christmas until it finds its permanent home.

So how much does it cost? Well, the price tag is definitely is a bit more than what you'd expect from the average Christmas tree lot. The prices run from $135 for 6'-7' tall trees to about $50 for 2'-3' ft trees (price includes delivery and pick-up).

What do you think of this idea? Is this something you would consider doing? Weigh in with your thoughts in the comments!
