The most responsible thing to do with a live Christmas tree is plant it once the holiday passes.

At least one local store is offering a service this year to plant the tree for you.

For $215, Seattle store One Earth One Design, with landscape design company Akina Designs, delivers one of three varieties — White Fir, Douglas Fir or Western Red Cedar — to homes in the Greater Seattle area. The tree comes in a galvanized-steel container and lasts 10 days indoors.

After the holidays, Akina will plant the tree in your yard or donate it to EarthCorps (www.earthcorps.org), a nonprofit organization that restores public spaces and parks.

“I always like the feel and smell and ambiance of a live tree, but so many people don’t really know how to take care of a live tree,” said One Earth One Design owner Sandy Campbell. “It’s a way to have a live tree handoff.”
