Community Oak Planting



To raise awareness of the need to plant more oaks and take better care of the ones we have, TLC has been working with municipalities, schools, churches, students and volunteers to promote the next generation of oaks.

To date, over 800 oak trees have been planted at sites around the county. The trees are raised by Glacier Oaks Nursery in Harvard and are 2-3 years old when planted.




This spring, April 24, 2015, oaks will be planted by volunteers in Johnsburg and Port Barrington. If you or your group are interested in participating in a community oak planting, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
