Tree Planting Program

The Village is once again offering the 50/50 Tree Planting Program for residents who are interested in having a tree planted in their parkway.  Foresters from the Public Works department will examine your parkway to determine whether there is sufficient space for a tree to be planted.  Residents whose parkway can accommodate a new tree and who choose to participate in the program will be responsible for paying their portion before the tree is planted.  The cost to residents for 2019 is $170 per tree.  Please keep in mind that the number of trees is limited.

The tree species available for Spring 2019 are:
