Fall is a great time to plant trees and shrubs so 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 become established.
CFC’s 23th annual Fall Native Tree and Shrub Plant Sale can help you with the best choices for our specific area.
Sales are PRE-ORDER only– no additional plants will be available. Following current health guidelines, plant order pick-ups will be by preassigned appointment.
Online PRE-ORDERING August 15 – September 1
All plants are by pre-order only.
Pick-Up Appointments September 19 & 20
Plans are for pick-ups at Freier Farm, 23805-24099 N Kelsey Rd, Lake Barrington. This is less than 2 miles from the CFC Farmhouse.
