Want Your Silvertip by Thanksgiving? Here’s when to Order.

For those of us who start decorating early and like to put up the tree before Thanksgiving you will need to order your tree early if you want your tree to arrive by Thanksgiving.

Below is a map from UPS with estimated shipping times:

The transit days listed on the map refer to business days. We figure it is best to add at least one-two days on to the estimate. So in California it may take about 2-3 days for your tree to arrive (barring any delays with UPS). For New York if we ship your tree on Monday it will most likely arrive on the following Monday. However, in some cases, trees have arrived earlier on a Saturday. In most cases, how fast your tree arrives depends on how busy UPS is and what the weather is like. Below is another graphic showing estimated transit times.

So when should you order your tree to have it arrive by Thanksgiving? If your state is dark orange on the Eastern part of the US (on the map above) we recommend having your tree shipped on November 12-14. If you are located in a red area (see map above) then we recommend having your tree shipped on Nov 14-16. For the light green areas we recommend Nov 15-16. For everyone else Nov 16. California can probably get away with Nov 19 but you’ll be pushing your luck. UPS gets very busy Thanksgiving week and will typically see delays.
