We love them for the shade they offer in summer and the beauty they provide throughout the year. With their gnarled limbs, it's easy to think each one has a unique personality. As if that weren't enough, oaks also provide necessary habitat to a large number of butterfly and insect species, which in turn support a great diversity of birds.
Whether you wish to plant an oak at home, create a living memorial to a loved one or special occasion, or help restore the once abundant oak woodlands of McHenry County, TLC has something for you!
