Bucks County, Pa. man offers Christmas tree delivery service during pandemic

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A man from Bucks County, Pennsylvania is making it easier and safer for you to have a Christmas tree this holiday season.

Jason Toutkoushian is the founder of Express Evergreens, a new tree Christmas tree delivery service whose popularity is growing given the pandemic.

He wanted to make sure every family could celebrate during these trying times.

"So they may be inflicted with COVID-19, or they may not be able to go out to a tree lot because they're in danger of contracting it," said Toutkoushian.

Toutkoushian is a one-man show. Every delivery is contactless. He personally delivers every tree and contacts his customers, like Shannon Bellew, via text for drop off.

"I just felt it was more convenient and one less thing I had to strap a mask on for," said Bellew. "I think it's fabulous. A lot of people I know have been picking their trees out online."

Toutkoushian even prunes the trees. Every customer also gets a free wreath.

Trees and delivery range from $80 to $300.

"It's COVID and there's extra stress. Everybody seems to be working double time. There's just that whole happiness and extra pride when they get a tree and they decorate it," Toutkoushian said.
