Spring & Fall Oak Sale
The 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!
Please check back in spring to place your order for pick-up in May 2014!
Here is a listing of species, sizes and prices that were available in Fall 2013:
|Red Oaks - 1-2' Only $20||White Oaks - 1-2' Only $20||Bur Oaks - multi sizes||Swamp White oaks - multi sizes|
We also have three other native nut-producing trees available:
|Pecan - 4', $55||Mockernut Hickory 3-4', $75||Butternut 4', $72|
Pick up takes place at Hennen Conservation Area, 4622 Dean Street, Woodstock.
Thirty percent of the sale price of all trees is used to support community oak planting events throughout the community. The rest covers the cost of raising the trees - and makes it possible for us to continue growing local trees for the community!
