Trees By Bike in third year of business

Portland business Trees By Bike begins their third year of delivering Christmas trees by bicycle Friday.

Portland business Trees By Bike begins their third year of delivering Christmas trees by bicycle Friday.

The company also delivers Hanukkah candles and other supplies.

"Yule Dispatcher" Max Kirchoff says demand was so high last year that they're starting deliveries sooner and he's brought up one of his delivery riders to help him manage the business. They've also added a new cargo trailer (the "Bill" model from Surly) that will allow them to carry six trees at a time.
Kirchoff says they delivered well over 100 trees last year and he's hoping to triple that amount this year. As if having your tree delivered by bike and supporting a local entrepreneur isn't reason enough to feel good about your purchase, Trees By Bike will give 10% of all revenue to The Dougy Center, a non-profit that helps children and their families deal with the grieving process.
