We are part of the Chicago Region Trees Initiative (CRTI), the largest initiative in the country building a healthier regional forest.

The right tree can reduce energy use, lowering the cost of utility bills by naturally cooling a home in summer and providing shelter from the cold in winter. Trees in the Chicago region provide $44 million a year in energy savings. Unfortunately the Chicago region has lost more than 13 million trees in recent years, therefore we need to plant more trees to regain the many benefits they provide. Plant a tree today to cool and save energy. Stop in and let us help you pick the right tree for your landscape and soil during our BIG TREE SALES EVENT going on April 1st through April 30th at our Bloomingdale and Carpentersville locations.

Platt Hill Nursery is Chicago’s premier garden center and nursery.
