Lighting Up Christmas as a Family Business
Lit Christmas Trees traces it’s roots back 20 years as an innovative solution to a simple problem. Bill Reilly wanted an illuminated Christmas tree in his front yard, but he didn’t want the typical boring teepee of lights. He wanted something that looked like a tree with real limbs. An engineer by trade, he kept tinkering until had assembled a 12-foot tree and strung it with lights.
“I thought it looked kind of neat,” Bill said. But he knew his solution was a winner when his wife came home.
“That looks great!” she exclaimed.
“She has very high standards and impeccable taste so, I thought wow, I need to keep working on this.”
Since then Bill has continued to refine the Trees, adding different sizes, multiple color options and actually received a Patent for his unique design. Bill’s Trees have grown to be a staple of the Central Fl Christmas scene with over 200 trees in the small town of Ocala alone.
From Central Florida to Your Neighborhood and Business
The company installed about two hundred trees in 2020, including a spectacular installation at Tampa General Hospital that is visible throughout the city. Other notable installations include upscale horse farms in the Ocala area.
“This has been a great family business,” Bill said. “Setting up and taking down trees, doing it as a family, is tough work sometimes but it’s been great. And there’s just something special about our customers. They are really good people. We really enjoy taking care of our customers.”
We are currently serving the cities of Ocala, The Villages, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Palm Coast, Lake City and Orlando.
With the 2022 season, the business is again evolving from meeting the needs of Central FL to the growing demand around the entire state and beyond. Our goal is to provide commercial-grade, hassle-free tree rentals with professional installation across America.
