Tree Planting Services

All tree planting orders can be done over the phone or via email. We can even text you photos of the tree(s). We'll gladly help you with choosing the right tree for your yard either over the phone, via email or in person. Please call or text us at 630.584.4424 or email us at [email protected].

Planting a tree is much more than digging a hole. Our experienced crews can plant any of the plant material you purchase from Wasco Nursery & Garden Center. The professional planting crews of Wasco Nursery follow proper planting techniques and mulch plant material carefully so as to not put mulch on too thick or around the trunk (a.k.a. “volcano mulching”). We use an organic starter fertilizer loaded with beneficial bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi when we plant trees. We often hear that our crews leave our customer’s yard cleaner than when they arrived. On the day of planting, the crew leader will leave you with care and watering instructions so you can get your trees or shrubs off on the right foot. Wasco Nursery offers an industry leading three year plant guarantee on all plant material we install.

Communicating with J.U.L.I.E.

Our team will contact J.U.L.I.E. to mark for any underground utilities at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled planting date. Wasco Nursery is not responsible for damage done to irrigation lines or unmarked underground service lines such as dog fences, landscape lighting, etc.


If you are experiencing a problem with a tree or shrub purchased at and / or planted by Wasco Nursery please contact our Customer Service Manager directly at 630.485.4381 or fill visit our Online Sick Plant Form. Our Customer Service Manager will contact you after your concern is submitted to discuss your plant(s) and their health. We often make house calls to look at struggling plant material so please don’t hesitate to contact us so we can help you get your plants back on the right track.

“ Thank you for designing a beautiful garden. You captured my imagination and desire for a "Growing in Place" garden concept. It flows so beautifully and the combination of different plants will be fun to take care of. The Turtleheads are blooming and the Butterfly mint is attracting hummingbirds. ”

“ Wasco Nursery is the best place to fill all your gardening needs. I’ve had so many compliments on perennials, most of which I’ve not seen in other garden centers. I recommend walking the grounds to see the huge variety they carry and talk to their knowledgeable staff. So friendly and accommodating! ”
