Fall Native Tree & Plant Sale

08:00 AM - 01:00 PM
Mellody Farm
350 N. Waukegan Road
Lake Forest, IL , 60045

This event is cosponsored by The City of Lake Forest and Lake Forest Open Lands Association.

One of the best ways to establish and maintain a healthy landscape for your home or business is to use a diversity of native plants. Native trees and shrubs have evolved to withstand weather-related stressors more efficiently than non-native species.  It is also important to select a variety of species to avoid widespread tree and plant loss caused by pathogens and insects, like the enormous loss of local ash trees experienced in recent years due to the invasive Emerald Ash Borer.

How native plants help your landscape and our community 

·         Promote biodiversity and support native wildlife which is important for   ecological balance,

·         Require little maintenance, because they are already adapted to our soils and climate,

·         Are less dependent on fertilizers, pesticides and supplemental watering, and

·         Have evolved natural defenses against many regional pests and diseases.

Please join The City of Lake Forest and Lake Forest Open Lands!

Native plant material will be made available at reduced costs with a portion of the proceeds going toward re-greening Lake Forest’s open space.
