LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- If you want a real Christmas tree but don't want to trek out in to the cold and snow, Z's Lawn and Landscaping has a solution: a drive-thru Christmas tree shop.
You pull in, look around and pick out your tree. The trees are inside so they are free of snow and ready to be strapped to your car. Z's carries Fraser Furs in a variety of sizes and all are locally grown.
"Nobody wants to take a frozen wet tree in tot heir home so four years ago I thought what could be better than having a drive through system where people can drive in, the trees are displayed, it's still cold out," Tom Ziega, owner of Z's said. "The kids can look, parents can look and you end up with a nice tree."
Zieja says they cut the bottoms so the trees can absorb water and shake off excess needles to avoid a mess when you bring it in the house. He sells between 75 and 100 trees every year.
Z's Lawn and Landscaping is located on 4th Street in La Crosse.
