Everyone loves the special holiday feeling that a fresh-cut tree brings to their home. But shopping for a tree, hauling it home and setting it up is a major chore for anyone, especially seniors and people with disabilities.

“I know lots of folks who love having a fresh-cut tree for the holidays, but don’t because it’s simply too much work,” said Eric Moss of Edmonds, a strapping guy whom you might mistake for a lumberjack. “Well, I’m here to help. I’ll personally pick out your tree, deliver it, and even help you put it in a stand. All you have to do is decorate and enjoy. And when the holiday season is over, I can arrange with you to come back and pick it up for recycling.”

Moss has partnered with Snow Day Farms, which has been providing this service in the Puget Sound area for several years, to serve his neighbors in Edmonds and adjoining communities. Orders can be completed on the Snow Day Farms website or by phone at 206-485-3724.

As soon as he assembles a few orders, Moss and partner Neil Bergquist get busy picking just the right tree. “Each Thursday we go straight to the tree farm and hand-pick each one,” he says. “I look for the one tree in a hundred with perfect symmetry, branching and shape, then cut it and load it on the truck for Edmonds.”

Moss will donate 10 percent of each sale to the Boys and Girls Club.

Customers get their cut-to-order trees delivered on the weekend, ensuring it will stay fresh and fragrant throughout the holiday season. According to Moss, prices are competitive with local tree lots, where trees are often cut weeks before you buy them.

In addition, 10 percent of each order goes to support the Boys and Girls Club. “You’re not only getting a great holiday tree, but you’re helping support your community,” Moss said.

If you want your tree delivered this weekend, there’s still time to order. Moss says that all orders received before Thursday morning will be delivered either Saturday or Sunday.

  1. Yes, holiday trees. With there being several holidays during the month of December, why recognize just one of them, embrace them all and call the tree you put up a holiday tree.
