San-Francisco based transportation service Uber promises to deliver your Christmas tree within minutes straight to people’s doorsteps, according to HNGN. All you need to do is download the Uber app on iOS, Android or Blackberry and order a tree with no delivery charge.

“Instead of spending your weekend wrestling with a tree from the not-so-near farm or slushy street corner, kick back, pour yourself an extra glass of eggnog and watch your app as Uber takes care of the heavy lifting,” Uber writes on its official blog. “With the help of The Home Depot and a bit of holiday magic, Uber will deliver a live tree to your doorstep with the touch of a button.”

The offer applies to residents of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Requests will be met on a first come first serve basis for a sub charge of $135 and free shipping for your Christmas tree.
