Stay up-to-date with the status of your delivery:

1. When our delivery elves are on the way to your location, you will receive an SMS message with a tracking link at the contact phone number you provide at checkout. 

2. Using this link you will be able to view the location of your driver and estimated time of arrival in real time. 

3. You will receive another SMS message when the driver has arrived at your location.  We ask for your patience - sometimes it can be tricky to find parking! 🎅

4. Our team will give the tree a fresh cut and prep it in the tree stand before bringing it into your building. 


Our team will phone the contact number if assistance is needed gaining entry to the building. If there is no answer they will leave a voicemail. The team will wait five minutes and call the number again. If there is no answer for the second attempt, our team will move onto their next scheduled delivery. A new delivery date / time will need to be coordinated with our customer service team. There will be a $50 re-delivery fee to schedule a new delivery appointment or a 50% cancellation fee to cancel the order. 


Certificate of Insurance (COI):
If your building requires a COI for delivery, CHI TREES will provide one for a $5 fee. You will need to add this into your cart at the time of tree purchase. Our team will need 2 business days to process the COI request. To request a COI, please follow the steps below to ensure a seamless delivery process:

  1. Check with your building if a COI is required. If so, please request a sample COI from them with their specific requirements. 
  2. At the time of placing your order, please add-on the COI request to your cart for purchase.
  3. When selecting your delivery window, please allow for a minimum of 2 business days between the time the order is placed and the time of delivery to allow enough time to secure the COI prior to delivery. 
  4. You will receive an automatic email requiring action from your part to submit your COI. If you have questions regarding COI requirements to info@chicagotrees.comAfter we receive the sample from you, we will reply with the official COI to pass along to the building. 

Please note: If our team arrives for a scheduled tree delivery and is turned away by the building because a COI has not been requested in advance there will be a $50 re-delivery fee.

Tree Swap:
At CHI TREES delivering you the perfect tree to celebrate the Christmas season is important to us. With our Love Your Tree Guarantee, if there is something wrong with your tree our team will make every effort to replace the tree up to one time. Below is a list of tree issues that may qualify for a swap upon review by the CHI TREES team:

    1. I ordered a tree that is too large / too small: If your tree arrives and you find that you have ordered a tree that is too large or too small, please contact our customer service team at 773-219-3461 or emailing info@chicagotrees.com. Our team will arrange a day / time frame for a swap to replace the tree previously delivered for a tree that better fits your size needs. Please note that you will be charged a re-delivery fee of $50. Additionally, if you have upgraded to a larger size tree, you will also be charged for the difference in price between the original tree and the new, larger tree.
  1. I’m not happy with the shape of my tree: It takes a minimum of 24hrs after delivery for the tree’s branches to settle after having been tied during transport.  After 24hrs, if you are still unhappy with the shape of the tree, please take photos and email to info@chicagotrees.com. Our team will review your case and if warranted, will work to schedule a tree swap.  Please do not contact us for a swap until after the 24hr window has passed, as no action will be taken until we have given the tree ample time to acclimate. 

  2. My tree is not drinking water / very dry: When the trees go from being outside in the cold winter air to heated homes it is often a shock to their system. If your tree does not begin drinking immediately, don’t panic. Oftentimes, it takes 24-48hrs for them to adjust to their new environment before they begin to drink. Please refer to these Tree Care tips some methods to help the tree to acclimate. Please do not contact us for a swap unless at least 48hrs have passed without the tree drinking any water.  No action will be taken until we have given the tree ample time to acclimate.
