Forestry & Grounds

The Forestry Division is responsible for the management of over 25,000 Village-owned trees, as well as the maintenance of Channel Park, Krier Plaza, landscaped medians, bike paths, and seasonal flower displays.

Trees and landscaped areas offer numerous benefits for the community and the environment.  The Village values these resources and has been a proud recipient of the Tree City USA Award since 1985.   

Find a local tree care company

Village Foresters inspect parkway and other Village-owned trees for diseases, insects, pruning, and potential removals. However, if you own a private tree you will need to hire a private arborist for inspections and work. It is important that the company has an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certified arborist on staff and that the company is properly insured.
