Spring & Fall Oak Sale

Oak seedlings grown OutsideThe two best times to plant an oak are twenty years ago... and Today!

Working with Glacier Oaks Nursery in Harvard, TLC is able to provide healthy and beautiful oaks to the community. All trees are grown from locally gathered acorns that are collected from healthy, local trees.

Forty percent of McHenry County was once covered with oak trees - bur, white, red, scarlet, black and swamp white. While many of the original woods are gone, we can all help ensure that oaks will be part of the community 250 years from now by planting oaks today!

These amazing trees are considered keystone species in this area. What that means is that the survival of many other species - insects, birds and mammals - depends upon the health of the oaks!

Get Involved with TLC

There are a variety of ways to help TLC preserve the natural, scenic and agricultural lands that make McHenry County so attractive, and that provide such a high quality of life to its residents.


As a small organization, TLC relies upon the work of volunteers, the financial support of members, as well as the decisions that private property owners make to preserve their land.
