Naperville Public Works will once again host its annual Arbor Day Tree Sale. Residents can select from hundreds of trees of many varieties of trees at fantastic savings to beautify their yards and help the environment.
The 2013 Arbor Day Tree Sale will take place on Saturday, April 27, 2013, 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.
The 2013 Arbor Day Tree Sale price and species list is now available in PDF format.
The "Trees for Naperville ~ Tree Selection and Planting Guide" booklet will be available at the event.
The City of Naperville has been named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation for 23 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.
