There’s nothing better than decorating a tree to get you in the Christmas spirit! But what if this year, instead of cutting down the perfect tree, you kept it in a pot and planted it after Christmas?
Traditional Christmas Tree farms are sustainable in many ways, especially by recycling the trees after the holidays. However, there is one way to take this holiday staple to the next level of “green”, by letting it LIVE! Planting Christmas trees after the holiday instead of recycling promotes the creation of habitats and ecosystems, truly making this an eco-friendly and sustainable way of celebrating the holidays!
» Sustainable and Simple!
» The live tree will be planted after Christmas!

How The Living Christmas Tree Program Works
We have carefully searched and selected a variety of trees that will not only look great in your living room, but will continue to thrive in NC climate after planting.
Visit us at the Garden Center at Johnson Nursery located at 985 Johnson Nursery Rd Willard, NC 28478 to shop our selection of live christmas trees! The garden center’s operating hours are:
Sunday – Closed
Monday – Friday – 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Saturday – 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Our Garden Center staff will help you coordinate the delivery of your perfect Christmas tree. Our goal is to deliver your tree in the first week of December*
*Please note, we will not be able to guarantee a specific delivery time, but will do our best to
accommodate your preferred day
Once your tree is in your home, we encourage you to decorate it and share pictures with us! Enjoy your living tree just like you would a pre-cut or artificial tree!
After Christmas, we’ll call you to check in & find out how you would like to rehome your tree! See the next section for our recommendations:
