Place your order now to secure your tree planting order at the soonest planting date and increase your chances of obtaining your first selection! Quantities of certain species of trees are limited in order to increase the diversity of our forest. Some species we planted in the past are no longer being planted in Oak Lawn due to lack of success of those trees. Please call the Village of Oak Lawn Forestry Division as soon as possible to reserve your first choice.
Together we can keep Oak Lawn’s Village forest growing.
