A sustainable holiday company renting live Christmas trees to the greater Los Angeles area.

Our vision

Our mission is to infuse life into Christmas with living pine trees for families across Southern California to enjoy during the holidays each and every year through:

Sustainability

Trees are kept in a pot all year long and cared for in the mountains an hour north of Los Angeles using minimal water year-round through timed watering.

Conscious Consumption

Once the tree has enjoyed a long career and reaches retirement height, it is planted in the ground to positively impact the environment.

Generational Impact

You can rent the same tree year after year so you can see your tree get taller as your kids transition through childhood. Your grandkids and great-grandkids will be able to go visit your tree years in the future.

Your tree grows with your family every year.

Start new traditions and make lasting memories by bringing a live Christmas tree into your home for the holidays.

How it works

Reservation

We send out an email to everyone signed up for our mailing list for customers to rent their tree. To secure your tree, we require a signed contract and a deposit.

Coordination

 After finalizing reservations, we schedule the delivery dates that we will be in your area to get our trees to you. Then its all hands on deck to make the most efficient route to get our trees to their home for the holidays.

Delivery

Potted and ready to go, our trees hit the road to make it to your home for a conscious California Christmas this holiday season. Trees will come in a plastic nursery pot and for an additional cost, we can also include add-ons like ceramic pots, sustainable decorations, or a kit to make a plaque to be delivered with your tree for years to come.

Collection

Happy New Year!

With many memories made, our trees head back to the mountain! They’ll receive around the clock care to be ready for your family for the next holiday season. 

Coming Soon: Kids can see them on our Tree-Cam throughout the year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I rent the same tree year after year?

Absolutely! We want these trees to grow with your family every year. We have contracts available to set up a recurring rental agreement at a discounted rate for future years. While the cost of the rental isn’t due up front, we do require a nonrefundable deposit based on your annual commitment. Inquire for more details.

Where are the Christmas trees throughout the year?

Our beautiful pine trees spend their off months in none-other-than Pine Mountain Club, California. Located in the serene Los Angeles National Forest, the trees are kept in their pots throughout the year and well cared for.

Can I rent a live Christmas tree if I don't have a green thumb?

You are free to inquire as to our availability but you are required to sign a contract with your payment that agrees to proper care and conditions for your tree. Any damage beyond fair wear and tear will result in additional charges up to the full value of the tree. If you are not prepared to take care of a living tree, we suggest getting your tree elsewhere.

Any trees that incur natural damage will be mulched and sustainably returned to the earth.

What happens when your trees are too tall?

Luckily, our pine trees only grow around four inches a year so each should have plenty of years being happily rented.

Just like humans, our trees enjoy a happy retirement once they’re ready. Each of our trees are planted in the ground in Pine Mountain Club to keep growing for many years to come.

Can I see my Christmas tree throughout the year?

We do not offer visits to our nursery in Pine Mountain Club but we are looking into cameras to add in 2023 so kids can login to watch their trees grow online.

We also plan to offer a special “Christmas in July” service in coming months so be sure to let us know if you might be interested in renting during the summer.

Payment is required to reserve your tree so please plan accordingly.

How will I care for the tree once its at my house?

Did you know? Other Christmas trees are as bad for the environment as coal in a stocking

  • Millions of Christmas trees are grown specifically for the holiday to be chopped down each year between the US and Europe, causing significant and unnecessary cuts.

  • Over 200 species of pine trees are also at risk of extinction.

  • The carbon footprint of artificial trees equals 40 kg of greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Artificial trees also contribute to the global plastic problem.

  • Live-cut Christmas trees lead to unethical farming practices, forest exploitation, and improper disposal after Christmas.

  • Generally, consumers buy, travel, and waste more during this holiday month--contributing to a global carbon footprint that is ~6% higher than the rest of the year.

Work together with us to make trashed trees a thing of the past! If you have any questions or special needs or circumstances, please send them below and we will get back to you within two business days. Not in Southern California and want to rent a tree? We're hoping to expand in 2024—let us know where you'd like us to deliver!
