Deep green, ebullient Christmas trees are symbolic pedestals of the holidays, and a handsome Christmas tree, no matter where it’s located, will always be the centerpiece of a merry home. Christmas trees, or “trees of life,” represent rebirth and the value of life itself, embodying the cheer that comes along with the holiday spirit.
With all the heartwarming notions tree brings into a home, actually bringing the tree into a home yourself can feel more exhaustive than it’s worth—and The Garden Gates owners Beth and Chad Harris know the ins and outs of that exhaustion.
The Fateful Genesis of Christmas Tree Delivery
There’s never a “best time” to purchase a towering tree, heave it into the house, and cross your fingers while you set it up on a flimsy stand. And Beth and Chad’s fateful tree story is precisely why there are elegant Frasier Firs available for no-mess delivery and setup in the Metairie area.
Immediately after The Garden Gates’ storefront was first conceived, the last thing Chad wanted to do was buy a massive tree and lug it into the home. But energized by Christmas spirit, that’s exactly what he did. Dragging it into the house and up an endless flight of stairs, low and behold—it was too big and smashed against their ceiling. So the monolith tree was dragged back out, went into surgery with stump-cutting power tools, and was brought back in, still scraping the top of their ceiling as it went. Beth and the kids donned the towering fir with sparkling ornaments, and everything was finally settled.
Until the huge fir tree came crashing down in the middle of the night, with every little glass ornament shattered.
So Began Christmas Tree Delivery for the Metairie Area
After the destructive night of explosive glass and pine, The Garden Gates owners aimed to make Christmas Tree setup and delivery services available to save more holiday homes from agonizing over often the most challenging part of the holidays.
In the beginning, the finest Frasier Firs, dotting the green expanses of West Virginia, were sought out by Chad, who quickly became a tree expert, inspecting each tree thoroughly for a healthy composition. The first year started with 100 tree orders. Now, the Garden Gates delivers over 2,000 trees every year to many appreciative homes, with orders beginning as early as January. Every tree is affixed to a sturdy stand to ensure no accidents and comes with tree preservative to extend the life of the tree, as well as a removal bag. To top it off, each Christmas tree has the option of coming already lined with twinkling lights.
Holidays are a time to soak in festive cheer—not to worry about strapping 50+ pounds of forest to your car and carrying it up your stairs. And now, getting your annual tree has never been easier. Many customers order their beautiful tree from their phones, tablets, computers, or come into the store the old-fashioned way. All that’s required is adding your finishing touches with a few ornaments and making a toast when you turn on the lights, reassured by the marvelous sight of a sparkling, hassle-free Christmas Tree.
