How it Works for Homeowners
iTrees.com strives to bring homeowners the simplest way to add trees to your home landscape. Just buy your trees online, we'll deliver or install them, and you can enjoy them for a lifetime.
Pick and purchase your trees from our online store.
Using our website as a resource will help you figure out which trees are the best fit for your Chicago landscaping project. The most important thing to remember when deciding which trees are right for your yard? Common sense! Just walk around your yard and imagine where trees would look good. Look for areas where you need more shade, privacy, or color, and then plan accordingly with shade trees, clump trees, or ornamental trees.
Our Online Store
If you need help choosing a tree for your yard, iTrees.com is just the resource to help you! Our online store allows you to shop by tree type if you aren't sure what's right for your yard. You can also shop by tree species if you already have a good idea of what you want. If you are looking for something specific, you can search our entire inventory. Once you select a specific tree, you can view that particular tree's vital info, full plant description (including why it rocks, where to put it, and what it needs), iTrees.com rating, and user reviews.
If you are one of those people who need to physically see each tree to make a decision, you are more than welcome! Our holding yard is conveniently located about 30 min southwest of Joliet, and customers are more than welcome to pick their own trees directly out of the field, by appointment only. No matter where you are coming from, our customers always enjoy the pleasant drive through the country. Bring your whole family, and an iTrees.com representative will be happy to give you recommendations for nearby restaurants, state parks, tourist attractions, or a tour of some actual working farms. If you come at the right time of the year, you may even leave with some fresh sweet corn straight from the field!
Our Online Design Center
If you need help deciding where to put your trees, visit our Online Design Center and let us guide you through the process step-by-step.

Schedule a delivery or planting appointment.
As soon as your order is processed, you will be contacted by one of our staff to set up your delivery or installation appointment. During the season, we can usually have your trees to you within 2-4 weeks of ordering. Planting dates range in season from about May 1st to December 1st, depending on weather. While we can only plant during certain seasons, feel free to purchase your trees at any time during the year...don't worry we won't forget about you. Here at iTrees.com we are 100% committed to the absolute satisfaction of our customers.
You will then be able to consult our design guide, and find the best placement for the trees in your yard. Mark your yard exactly where you would like us to deliver or plant your trees using stakes, paint, or anything around the house- just as long as we know where to put them!
Up to a week before our scheduled planting date, you will be contacted by one of our well-trained employees to confirm the date and make sure the stakes are in the yard and ready to go.
Once our crew plants your trees, we will present you with a checklist for tree health and explain to you how to properly care for your new trees. It is in our best interest to keep our customers happy and their trees healthy, because we depend on customer referrals and return business to keep our business running.
Enjoy Your New Trees!
The only thing left to do is to walk around your yard and appreciate the wonderful decisions you have made! You have chosen beautiful trees that add aesthetic value, and you have added lasting value to your home or property.
