Christmas Tree Delivery, Set-up & Removal:

Skillins Greenhouses is please to offer our customers Christmas tree delivery, set-up and pick-up services after Christmas.


Christmas tree delivery is $30.00. If the area is not ready when Skillins arrives we will gladly help move couches, chairs, and small tables; however we cannot move electric devices such as televisions, computers, stereos, entertainment systems or components of any of these systems. Depending on the extent of the moving necessary there maybe a $30.00 per hour per person fee for moving furniture.

An 8’ Christmas tree requires a 32” minimum doorway and passageway opening. Items hanging on walls should be removed so the tree can safely pass. The tree may still touch surfaces when we move it through the house. Skillins cannot make alterations to structures, or remove moldings or doors. Skillins cannot alter or otherwise adapt electrical systems. 

  • These charges are for Skillins transportation only (does not include the use of other carriers, barges or ferries).
  • Delivery outside of our customary delivery area will be charged at $25.00 per hour.
  • Other charges may apply if delivery requires more than a tailgate delivery.  These charges will be based on $30.00 per hour per person. 

Set-up Charges

Up to 9’ $30.00
Over 9’ $30.00 per hour per person plus materials used such as:

  • Tree stands
  • Cable/wire
  • Hooks


Skillins will fill tree stands with water if the customer wishes, however water in tree stands must be checked daily while the tree is indoors. Add water to the stand as needed. If a tree is allowed to dry out, it will need to be taken down, given a fresh base cut and put back up. Additional charges apply.

After Christmas Pick-up

Skillins will be glad to schedule pick up of your Christmas tree after the holidays. Skillins local delivery fees to your area will apply. Trees must be undecorated and ready to be removed. Skillins highly recommends tree removal bags to minimize the needles left behind.
Please call our stores or email us for charges and scheduling.
