It’s Not Too Late!


It’s not too late to rent a Living Christmas Tree and go green for the holiday season.  The Living Christmas Co., founded by Scott “Scotty Claus” Martin, is on a mission to change how the world does Christmas and just expanded delivery zones to Orange County and San Diego.

Martin’s live, potted Christmas tree concept isn’t just about saving a tree; his mission is to offer an entirely sustainable holiday experience. Depending on where you live, you can have a Turkish Fir, Monterey Pine, Giant Sequoia, Blue Cedar or Aleppo Pine delivered to you. Trees start at six feet and grow up to nine feet; prices range between $95 and $140, plus delivery.

The Living Christmas Co. team offers a variety of sustainable programs, including collecting donations for Goodwill as they do tree deliveries, and collecting used wrapping paper that the company re-uses for packaging eco-conscious holiday products including recycled and fair-trade ornaments, stocking stuffers and decorations.  After the holidays, the trees are returned to grow on reclaimed land.

With a partnership with Shell Oil, Martin has transformed four acres of unused land into a Christmas tree forest; and with a partnership with Social Vocation Services, the trees are cared for by adults with disabilities.

Living trees products can be found online at
