Cost Share Parkway Tree Planting
Did you know that parkway trees can increase property values, lower air conditioning costs, and reduce air pollution? Trees are good for business too! They beautify storefronts and encourage pedestrian shoppers. Start preparing now for spring planting by contacting a Village Forester at 847/933-8427. The Forester will inspect the parkway for underground utilities, evaluate site conditions and mark a suitable location for the tree. Residents may then select from a list of trees that will perform well on their parkway. The Village will pay 50% toward both the cost and planting of the new tree. Currently, the homeowner portion is $150 per tree.
