Online ordering for Citizens for Conservation’s annual Fall Native Tree and Shrub Sale begins Tuesday, August 1.
Fall is a good time to plant trees and shrubs, when roots can get established before winter’s cold weather. Native trees and shrubs provide the best choices of woody plants because they absorb storm water, can survive our extreme temperatures, don't need fertilizer or insecticides and need watering only during the first year or two to get established.
To order, go to http://fallsale.citizensforconservation.org (on or after August 1) where there are plant descriptions, growing conditions and habitat benefits. Those who prefer a paper order form can download one from the website, request one by email at [email protected] or phone 847-382-7283.
Order deadline is September 1, and plant pickup is Saturday, Sept. 16 from 9:30 a.m. to noon at CFC. The sale is by pre-order only; there will be no extra plants for sale on the pickup date.
