Arbor Day

The Village of La Grange Park has been honored as a Tree City USA since 1987. The Village will annually plant a tree in memory or in honor of a special person. In the same manner that many people plant trees to celebrate the birth of a child, a marriage or memorialize someone who has passed away, the Village will publicly honor a La Grange Park resident or group with the planting of a tree. Planting a tree can be a terrific tribute to someone; trees grow tall and strong, provide shade for cooling in summer, release moisture in the air, help reduce flooding and erosion and are a source of beauty from season to season over a lifetime.
