Uber Technologies Inc. drivers will deliver Christmas trees free of charge to residents of two German cities as the ride-share company studies a broader on-demand service across the country.

Uber has joined with online retailer Meine Tanne to offer boxed north German firs for 19.90 euros ($21.60), according to a statement Thursday. They’ll deliver for free in Berlin and Munich starting Dec. 20.

Uber, based in San Francisco, has offered a home delivery service in the U.S. for some time via its UberRUSH app, according to Germany General Manager Christian Freese. “It’s very conceivable that on-demand services will also become established in Germany in the long term,” he said in the statement.
