Fun Way to Fundraise

If you are looking for a fun, new way to raise money for your group, why not do something that’s good for the earth, good for people, and will last a life-time?

We’ll provide the sugar maple seedlings for free if you provide the labor. Just find a new housing development that has very few trees, then go door-to-door and offer to plant in their yard for a small donation.


  1. Go the day AFTER a nice rain when the ground is soft and it will only take a few minutes to dig the hole and plant the tree.
  2. Be sure to mulch to keep the roots moist and cool.
  3. Free wood chips are often available from Du Page County Forest Preserve.
  4. For best results, water the tree thoroughly after you  plant it and insert a small stake near it so the homeowner won’t mow over it.


Not expected, but always appreciated 🙂

A few kind people have said that they would like to make a donation to help cover the cost of cups, labels, signs, paper planting directions, etc.

If you would like to do so, just click on the Donate button at left.

Thank you in advance! Donations are not expected, but always appreciated. And  they will certainly help me give out more trees!
