Fall Tree Planting

2020 Fall Tree Planting Program will begin on August 3, 2020.

 The Public Works Department has jurisdiction of the public rights of way in the Village. The area of the right of ways which are not paved streets may have underground utilities, drainage ditches, and landscaping. Each year residents are given the opportunity to have ONE tree added to the landscaping in the Village right of way adjacent to their property. The trees are planted through the Village’s itrees.com Fall Tree Planting Program. There is no cost to the resident for the tree or the planting; however residents are asked to water the tree until the tree is established (typically during the fall and again the next spring). 

 If you are interested in having one tree planted in the right of way then:                                                                                       1. Check the 2020 Tree Availability List and choose a tree you would like planted.

2. Call the Village Hall at (708) 671-3700 and request to be put on the Fall Tree Planting List.  You will need to give your Name, Address, Phone Number, and the name of the tree you have selected. If you do not select a tree you may not receive a tree.

 The deadline for tree requests is 5:00 p.m., August 31, 2020. There is a limited amount of trees available through the program. Trees may be limited due to tree availability at the time of planting. Please note that trees cannot be planted in the right of ways along State, County or Private Streets. The Village Arborist will visit each site in September to check if the species of tree selected has enough room and can thrive in the location selected. The Village Arborist will make the final decision if a requested tree can be planted. Trees will be planted by itrees.com during late Fall.
