Openlands Native Tree and Plant Sale

This year, let the land you love take part in something big...

The role we play in community health has never been more apparent. Planting natives is individual action that positively affects others and collectively, ripples across the land.

For those who can, let's devote a portion of our properties to a larger cause - the health of our region's landscape. Together we can make a meaningful impact by adoptoing and nourishing some of the beautiful imperiled native plants that once thrived here.

These are the plants that soak up stormwater, cleanse the air, beautify our properties, and provide the much-needed habitat our declining wildlife depend on. Traditional garden centers don't generally offer these plants. But our friends at Possibility Place Nursery do. We are proud to partner with them again this year.

New this fall, all orders in the greater Chicago area will be couriered with the utmost care directly to your door by Veterans Distribution of Chicago, a family-owned local business that has been operating for over 50 years. In-season orders are packed within a week. Purchasers will generally receive packages 1-2 days after receiving the email shipment confirmation.

Orders that fall outside the greater Chicago area will be delivered via USPS. Our grower, Possibility Place, guarantees the material and offers refunds/replacements if your purchase is damaged during delivery.
