Naperville Public Works will once again host its annual Arbor Day Tree Sale. Residents can select from hundreds of trees at fantastic savings (PDF) to beautify their yards and help the environment.
The 2016 Arbor Day Tree Sale will take place on Saturday, April 30 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Public Works Service Center, 180 Fort Hill Drive (Fort Hill Drive and Jefferson Avenue).
Payment may be by cash or check. Trees purchased at the sale must be removed by noon. Public Works employees will be on hand to help you load trees into your vehicle. Since these trees are container grown they are much easier to transport than trees that are dug and wrapped in burlap.
Experts from the Morton Arboretum will again be on hand to answer your tree questions, offer planting advice and distribute tree literature. In addition to the tree sale, The Conservation Foundation will be fulfilling rain barrel orders, which must be purchased in advance of the event. To order a rain barrel visit The Conservation Foundation.
The City of Naperville has been named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation for 26 consecutive years. The city recognizes that trees beautify and lend value to our homes, neighborhoods, parks and business areas. At the same time, trees conserve energy, help clean the air, protect rivers and streams, and provide a habitat for wildlife. Tree City USA is supported by the USDA Forest Service Urban and Community Forestry Program.
