Making any purchase online requires research, but buying certain specific items means even more research is necessary. Normally expensive items, like high end stereo equipment, are essential to compare for pricing. Products that can perish in delivery, in particular, should especially be thoroughly researched due to the fact that they are well, ... perishable. Everything ordered on the Internet requires shipping in one form or another, and for something like a fresh Christmas tree doing the right amount of research could easily make the difference between a great holiday and one that is less than memorable. Here are a few helpful ideas on how to shop when buying a Christmas tree on the Internet.

First, take advantage of the several websites out there where users review distributors. On these sites you can get first hand information from others who have already purchased the items you have been looking for. There are several product review websites that include Christmas tree websites in their reviews. Regardless of the research that these people did before making their purchase, they bought from somewhere and chances are that their experiences will provide great insight into your purchase. A couple of these types of websites are Pricegrabber.com and Shopping.com. But a simple Yahoo search for "Christmas tree reviews" can be a good place to start, too.

Second, when you find websites that you are thinking of ordering from, double check their available shipping options. Obviously, the faster your tree can be delivered, the better. Also, how do they package their trees from the farm? Do they give you with the equipment you need to keep the tree fresh through shipping and until you get your tree set-up? Some websites give better shipping resources than others, and this is an important question to ask. Not every purchase works out with the best results, so also remember to ask how quickly they can send a new tree in case yours comes to you in bad shape.

If you aren't already sure what breed of Christmas tree is best for you, third on your priority list should be available selection. If the websites you are looking at buying from have a large selection of breeds, find out whatever you can regarding the different trees they have available and which will work best in your area. A good website will make this information available for you directly on their pages, however, not having this information should not immediately disqualify a website on its own. Take advantage of free websites such as Wikipedia.com to learn about different types of Christmas trees to find the one that is right for your home.

Lastly, and always important, is cost. A memorable Christmas is priceless, however, price does play a role when buying a Christmas tree on the Internet. Be sure to contrast the costs from the websites that meet your other criteria, as pricing varies greatly. Focus on the total cost instead of just the tree price. Christmas trees are fairly large to ship and shipping charges can often make a fairly inexpensive tree skyrocket in price, so keep an eye out for free shipping offers from different sites. Also, many websites that sell Christmas trees do not take any refunds. Stay away from these websites and make sure that you are very familiar with the return policy of the website you make your purchase from.

Following these simple rules for researching your tree before you buy it will help ensure that you find the perfect Christmas tree this holiday season. This may appear to be a lot of effort, but think about how much more work it will be to piece your holiday together at the last second since you bought a Christmas tree online from an unreliable website. The choice is clear.
