For the lazy but festive: get your Christmas tree delivered this weekend

Dragging a heavy tree through the streets of the city may be a Christmas rite of passage, but in a town where round-the-clock delivery options are the norm, you should be able to get a Christmas tree sent to your door on demand, no? So goes the thinking behind Tyler's Trees, an online tree-ordering service that'll deliver, install, and even decorate your tree, without you having to set so much as a foot outside. Perhaps more importantly, once the pine needles have dried and the presents have been unwrapped, they'll also come get rid of it.
Of course, convenience doesn't come cheap: the lowest-priced option is a five-foot tree starting at $129, which includes delivery, installation, a tree skirt, and a heavy-duty tree stand. The priciest tannenbaum is a "Rockefeller 9 ft" tree for $369, with several other sizes and prices in between. If you shell out extra, they'll also bring in pro decorators to trim your tree, with the theme options of "Classic Christmas," "Winter Wonderland," or maybe the most enticing, "Gold and Glamorous." (Boxes of lights are available for $14.99 if you'd rather do it yourself.) Removal services start at $50.
