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).
2021 Trees will be planted in late October or early November. The 2021 Fall Tree planting program will begin on August 2nd, 2021. Please choose the type of tree you would like planted from the 2021 Tree Availability list below. Call the Village Hall 708-671-3700 and request to be placed on the Fall Tree Planting List. You will need to provide the type of tree you have chosen, your name, address, and a phone number where you can be reached.
