WASHINGTON - Would you ever order your Christmas tree online? With your WTOP Holiday Guide, we've got an in-house review of an online tree order.

WTOP's Program Director Laurie Cantillo's tree came from Five Star Christmas Tree Co. but a number of companies deliver trees -- some schools and organizations do it too. Bigger companies will even haul it away for recycling in the new year.

One of the best things about the mail-order tree? "No scratches on the roof of our car," Cantillo says.

Listen here for more of our in-house review:
