Hi Randy:

The State of Illinois no longer offers "no cost" bareroot seedlings from its two tree nurseries due to significant budget and staffing cuts within IDNR's Division of Forest Resources.

Therefore, you will need to procure shrub and tree seedlings from a private nursery or order them "at cost" from the IDNR nursery.
