2023 Tree Planting Form
Deadline: Friday, September 29, 2023
Embrace the Spirit of Community and Green Living! Join the Village's Reforestation Efforts with our Annual Tree Planting Program!
As proud members of the Suburban Tree Consortium (STC), a coalition of over 30 neighboring municipalities in the western suburbs, we're excited to invite you to be a part of our community's flourishing reforestation movement through our Annual Tree Planting Program!
Over the years, the STC has demonstrated its power in collective purchasing, bringing us together for a greener tomorrow. While the trees arrive without a guarantee, their impressive survival rate—just a tiny 1% mortality—reassures us of the incredible care and quality that accompanies them. Your new trees will be delivered in their dormant state, perfectly poised to establish strong and healthy root systems. Plus, with their local origin, these trees are primed to thrive in our unique soil conditions.
The trees are balled and burlapped, ensuring a seamless transition to your yard, requiring minimal pruning. But remember, timing is everything! As the delivery is planned for late Fall, we encourage you to plant your trees promptly upon receiving them. This ensures their resilience against the elements.
For those envisioning a touch of green along the parkway, just bear in mind the Village tree regulations. A permit is essential for parkway planting, but there's no fee involved!
