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.
