(RNN) – It seems like Amazon can deliver you anything these days, and starting this holiday season that’ll include full-sized live Christmas trees.

The online retailer will be selling and delivering 7-foot firs and pines, according to an Associated Press report.

An Amazon spokesperson said they will be sourced from the Alleghany County area in North Carolina and Michigan, sold through Hallmark and Costa Farms.

The company also told the AP the trees will be on sale starting in November, and in some instances will be available for free shipping to Amazon Prime customers.

Amazon first sold trees last year, but those were smaller 3-foot varieties.

"Amazon previously had trees available, but given the popularity among customers, we increased the assortment so there is even more selection to choose from including full-size trees, along with wreaths, garland, and holiday decorative flowers," an Amazon spokesperson said.

Customers had a positive response to the smaller variety of tree from Costa Farms last year.

"Fantastic product!!!! Arrived quickly and in perfect condition," one reviewer wrote. "Easy to open packaging while still protecting the integrity of the plant."

"It is very healthy and quite lovely. Well worth the purchase," wrote another.

There is currently a page for “Fresh Christmas Tree” on the outlet’s website, though none yet for sale.

Citing a company preview catalog for the holiday season, the AP reported one variety of tree, the Fraser fir, would cost $115.

While a Christmas tree may seem like a huge shipment, it doesn’t even come close to some of the larger things Amazon will deliver.

Huge machinery like a 1,791-pound wide-belt sander and a mammoth 6,700-pound lathe can be ordered through the retailer.
