Hobson Oak Seedlings
Four-year-old Hobson Oak seedlings are ready to be planted this year and are available for purchase. The Hobson Oak was DuPage County’s oldest bur oak at around 250 years old. In 2016, it was taken down for safety reasons. Since then, DuPage County and the Naperville Outdoor Alliance have been working to preserve its legacy with the Hobson Oak project. Seedlings are on sale on the Naperville Outdoor Alliance website.
