I have a question about the trees -- i bought one of the small cypress ones from Whole Foods and i am getting ready now to transplant it to a bigger pot! It's doing great, but does anyone know the variety it is or the species? Once i know that i can determine how much to water and fertilize -- and how big it will get too. Thanks!!

@David Products vary from store to store, so your best bet will probably be to check with the floral department at thes store you purchased the tree from. Thanks! I hope your tree does well!

@SASHA - The trees we have for sale at each location are going to vary in vendor, therefore varying in price. I would suggest reaching out to the store where you plan on buying your tree for a price quote.

Like many others who have posted, I too was hoping these trees would be organic. There are a couple organic growers in California - Black Road Xmas Tree Farms in Los Gatos, and Silvertip Tree Farm in North Fork, CA. Silvertip will even ship their trees via UPS!

Does your store in LaVista (Atlanta) carry small potted real christmas trees, so I can replant later? Thank You!

@MV - Our tree options will vary between locations. I would call the Atlanta store directly to see what they have in stock.

Do you know the source of San Rafael's Whole Foods Christmas trees? - I was told they came from Oregon with no flame retardent and likely were pesticide free as they were a very sustainable farm, yet my throat is sore immediatley I got the tree in the car ,last year both I and my 2 yr old daughter got very sick from our regular bought christmas tree ( never considered pesticides on trees as I grew up on a farm where we never sprayed them). There is a pesticide free farm in petaluma - //www.littlehillschristmastree.com/about.html. I am sure you could google more of them and suggest the smaller farms get a consortium together to deal with a huge account like whole foods: These are two great resources for organically grown produce and trees the first is "naturally grown" very similar standards as organic, the second is organic http://www.naturallygrown.org/;http://www.localharvest.org/

I purchased a tree from the Whole Foods Market Street Location in early December of 2013. I took it home and put it into the stand with water and within a week it was DEAD! I believe that just like Home Depot and Lowes, Whole Foods buys truck loads of trees that are cut sometime in late October and shipped to distribution centers where they are trucked to the stores. This means that the tree you are purchasing was cut 4 to 5 weeks before it hits the store. Fresh Trees, thats a laugh. I took the tree back and told them how unhappy I was and they refunded my money back. I went to Sundance Christmas Trees at 14th and Mission and bought a beautiful Fresh Cut Tree that lasted well into early January, 2014. I paid more for it, but it was worth it.

@DRAKE - My apologies about your tree last year. You can always let the store know in the future, they would love the opportunity to make it right!

@LAURA - I just spoke with the store and they do currently have trees in stock. They are running a bit low so you can always give them a call at 925.284.5305 to make sure they have some in before you head over.
