Parkway trees that are diseased or stressed should be reported to the Department of Public Works through the Online Service Request Form. A forester will examine the tree and determine an appropriate course of action. If a tree dies, the village will remove it and grind out the stump.

Parkway Tree Replacement 2021
The Parkway Tree Replacement Program allows residents to replace or add a parkway tree and share the cost with the Village. Residents are prohibited from planting their own tree in the parkway and permission is needed for the specific location, spacing, and species. Interested residents should complete and submit a parkway tree replacement form by April 16, 2021, to ensure a spring planting.
If you are interested in replacing or adding a new tree to your parkway, please read the following letter, and submit the online form.
Parkway trees greater than 7 inches in diameter are trimmed of dead, dying, diseased, interfering, objectionable, and weak branches every five years by a private contractor. Smaller trees are regularly trimmed by village crews. Residents are prohibited from pruning, trimming, spraying, or any other interference of parkway trees. If you have a small parkway tree that needs trimming, please use the Online Service Request Form
to make the request.
