Tree Planting

Spring 2020 Tree Planting Applications Now Available!

Now is the time to apply for a tree through the Village Cooperative Tree Planting Program for the spring of 2020. This program allows residents to select a tree from a list of six different species (which may vary from year-to-year) with the option to upgrade to a larger size. Participation in the shared-cost Cooperative Tree Planting Program allows the Village to maximize the number of trees planted annually, which helps keep our community green!

If a tree was removed from the parkway adjacent to your home, or if you would like to inquire about supplemental planting in the parkway, please click HERE to download the application.

Hurry, the deadline is April 10, 2020 and supplies are limited!
