Forestry

The Village Forester maintains and replenishes the woody vegetation in the Village right-of-way and in the Village parks, parkways, playgrounds and civic areas. The Village Forester plants new trees and shrubs, removes dead and dying trees and stumps, prunes Village trees, maintains a street tree inventory, maintains Village flower beds in the boulevards, and provides assistance to residents on tree related topics.

Planting Trees
If you are interested in planting a tree in the Village right-of-way, the Village Forester has created a listing of Recommended Street Trees (PDF) that are permitted for planting. Much thought has gone into this list to ensure species diversity and site adaptability within the Village. Residents are reminded that they need to contact the Village Forester to obtain a permit for planting within the Village right-of -way prior to any planting taking place.
