The Village tree planting program is primarily a replacement program for fatally diseased trees or trees severely damaged by storms or ice. Due to the large number of trees needing replacement, it currently takes the Village several years to replace a tree once it is removed. This voluntary program allows a resident to replace a public parkway tree sooner by ordering through the Village. The purchase, planting and mulching of the tree will be performed by Public Works or its contractor. The average cost of the tree is paid by the resident through an application process.
