Amazon in the works to sell Christmas trees this holiday season


(WTHR) — Amazon will be trying something new this holiday season.

The company plans to sell and ship fresh, full-size Christmas trees.

The trees will go on sale in November and they'll be sent within 10 days of being cut.

But the National Christmas Tree Association is not sure people are going to go for this idea.

The executive director says picking a tree in person is half the fun.

The association says only one to two percent of real Chritmas trees that were sold last year were bought online. That's out of 27 million.
