Semi-Annual Tree Sale

Purchase a tree from the Springfield Parks Foundation!

It's time for the semi-annual tree sale to benefit the Springfield Parks Foundation!

Help our community replace the many trees lost in the June 29th derecho (or this year) by donating a tree for the Springfield Park District, or by planting a tree of your own.  For your donation of $150, you can purchase a tree to be planted at a Springfield area park, or you can purchase a tree to plant in your own yard. Trees are expected to arrive in November, the best time to plant trees in our area.  

The trees that are available for purchase are all native to the Central Illinois area with a variety of shade and flowering trees.  Your donation goes to support the Springfield Parks Foundation. Our work is to support and improve our Springfield area parks. 

Thank you for your support!     

All purchases must be made by September 30, 2023
