Big Tree Nov 2015 WebWe have good selection of 10' to nearly 20' trees and in a variety of widths. If you have a really big room (with large exterior entrance doors) or an outdoor display and you want a large tree, you need to contact us ahead of time. We need the advance warning so that we are not trying to do this a busy time of the day when we need to help many customers over a short time period. The tree pictured is nearly 20 feet tall but we have many smaller ones.  

As you might guess it takes more workers and more time to cut, carry and package a tree of this size.   You don't transport it home on the roof of a sub-compact car.  You will need a large truck body or a trailer nearly as long as the tree.  You should also consider how you are going to secure it in the truck or trailer.  Rope or strong rachet straps are required.  Big trees need more than bailer twine.  Another concern is how you are going to get the tree safely out of the truck or trailer and upright at your location.  What kind of stand will hold a tree butt of this size?  We sell stands that will accomodate trees up to 12 feet or a bit more but a tree with a large diameter trunk will need a special stand or support.  If you choose a 10 to 12' tree, it is all manageble with some advance planning.  Each foot you add on to the height (and width) of the tree usually increases the amount of planning and resources required significantly.  

It might sound like we are trying to discourage you from getting a large tree over 12 feet.  We are not!  We just want to be sure you will be happy with your selection.
