THE NEXT GENERATION OF THE HOBSON OAK
DuPage County and and the Naperville Parks Foundation will work together to preserve the legacy of this special tree. Acorns were gathered in September 2016.
Naperville Parks Foundation is partnering with the Morton Arboretum to germinate the last acorns from the Hobson Oak. The last acorns harvested from the Hobson Oak have sprouted at the Morton Arboretum nursery. Learn more about Bur Oak, quercus macrocarpa.
Seedlings are available at auctions and thru the Naperville Parks Foundation.
Auctions will continue into 2019.
