Maintenance of the parkway trees are the responsibility of the adjacent property owner per the Village Code. Any trimming or removal is the homeowner's responsibility. Please keep a minimum clearance of 8' above the sidewalks for pedestrians to manuever.
The homeowner adjacent to any parkway tree that requires trimming or removal will be contacted to perform the maintenance.
The Village will perform maintenance only after the failure of the homeowner. The homeowner may be charged for the work necessary to perform the maintenance.
The Village's Parkway Tree Trimming Program is limited to:
- Trees that pose a safety concern or may potentially cause damage to vehicles
- Trees that hamper a motorist’s line of sight, obstruct regulatory traffic signs, or block light from streetlights
- Trees that can cause damage or be damaged by snowplowing equipment, garbage trucks, delivery trucks or other vehicles that are higher than normal passenger vehicles
If a parkway tree is damaged or becomes a hazard outside the normal program dates
(12/1-3/31) please notify Public Works
at (708) 403-6350 and we will assess the situation.
If you have an Ash tree in the parkway that is infested and/or dying from an infestation, please contact Public Works to assess the infestation. The Emerald Ash Borer
has been found in the Village and may have already infested many of the Ash trees.
Call Public Works at (708) 403-6350 if you have any questions about our Parkway Tree Trimming Program.
