Now Serving Chicagoland!

My good friend Douglas Chein, the man who gave me my start in prairie restoration way back in college, has decided to join the Good Oak team in order to offer native landscaping and ecological consulting services in the Chicago area.

Chicagoland was founded in a landscape with an exceptional diversity of plant and animal life and rich with a variety natural communities. So contact Doug if you're in the Chicago region and want to bring back the natural beauty of Chicago to your property.

...And, as always, contact me for projects here in Wisconsin.
