Trees & Parkways

grove of trees The Village provides trimming services and removal and replacement of Village-owned trees, which includes parkway trees in front of residents' homes. Residents are encouraged to contact the public works department with questions regarding trees that may show poor health or little or no growth, especially if the presence of Emerald Ash Borer is suspected. The department employs a full-time arborist who will respond to calls concerning the health and maintenance of Village-owned trees.

During the past three years, 705 parkway trees have been removed due to Emerald Ash Borer. While the Village's desire is to replace trees that are removed, this process is limited by the funds available. The Village offers a cost-sharing program (PDF) for residents who want to guarantee their diseased parkway trees will be replaced.

During the hot dry days of summer our parkway trees need some extra care to ensure that they survive and flourish.
