As part of the Village’s Comprehensive Forestry Management Program adopted by the Village Board in 2012, the Village performs a Tree Planting Program each year. The purpose of the Tree Planting Program is to replace tree removals performed throughout the year.
Since the onset of the Emerald Ash Borer to the Central United States, the Village has removed over 850 ash trees from our Village parkways. Our Tree Planting Program has replaced over 700 of these trees in the past four years. The 2016 Tree Planting Program plans to plant 120 trees in the Spring and another 120 trees this fall.
