How to Place a Tree Order
All orders must be placed online at www.naperville.il.us/arbordaytreesale. Trees are categorized by price, and residents may purchase multiple tree types through PayPal in one transaction. Once an online order is complete, shoppers will be directed to use an online calendar to schedule a time to pick up their tree(s) on Saturday, April 22 at the Public Works Service Center. For the safety of all, participants will be asked to stay in their vehicles while City staff members load the trees into vehicles during their pre-scheduled pickup timeslot. Customers will be limited to six trees. All tree sales are final, and trees must be picked up on April 22. Payment will be forfeited for trees that are not picked up on April 22 and no refunds will be given.
