The Forestry division receives a high volume of requests for inspection of parkway trees. Once a request is logged, a certified arborist will inspect the parkway tree(s) and leave a door hanger and advise or schedule the next steps that should be taken to care for the tree.
Trimming and removal actions would be performed only by the Village or Village contractor. The Village trims the parkway trees on a request basis and a cyclical rotation.
If a parkway tree dies, the village will remove it, grind out the stump and place soil.
Currently the Forestry Division has a high volume of calls and most work is about 12-14 months out. We appreciate your patience for this service.
