The Jubiltree Company, LLC

American Made Since 2012

We've updated an old tradition with our natural and reusable Christmas trees, beautifully crafted in Maine with traditional American hardwoods.

Tell us about your business.

Our company began as an innocent family project during the holidays. We set out to design a natural, reusable, and beautiful alternative Christmas tree for our own home, and quickly found many others welcomed the alternative too. Our design sparks imagination and creativity, and it’s easy to feel good about because it’s a quality American product that can be used over and over again. We established The Jubiltree Company, LLC to share our design with others, and also to contribute something new to the long tradition of wood product manufacturing in New England. We are proud our trees are made in Maine with traditional American hardwoods by highly skilled workers. Our commitment to USA manufacturing is a bedrock principle of our company, and we look forward to offering new products that reflect modern American craftsmanship and design.

What makes your business stand out?

Just about everything about our company is unexpected, from where we work to what we make. We're an Alaska-based business manufacturing in Maine, two places known more for their natural beauty than a contribution to modern design. And our product is a novel and unique take on a very old tradition. Each tree is an artisan piece crafted by skilled woodworkers and decorated by our special customers, so no two are just alike. Our commitment to quality American manufacturing also sets us apart, and though we are small we are driven by a desire to make a positive social and environmental contribution through our business.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Business should be about something more than just profit. If your mission is both to earn a living and make a positive contribution to the world, your company is more likely to have lasting value to your customers.
