Friday, April 29, 10 a.m.
The entire community is invited to the annual Arbor Day tree planting ceremony scheduled for Friday, April 29, 2022, 10 a.m. at Gleiss Park, 9301 Keystone Avenue. This event is a partnership between the Village's Public Works Department, the Beautification and Improvement Commission and the Skokie Park District.
The Village of Skokie’s urban forest contains over 25,000 parkway trees and thousands more on private property. The Village’s goal is to maintain a healthy and safe urban forest so that the canopy benefits are maximized. It is each property owner’s responsibility to care for their own trees and add to the benefits in the community.
The urban tree canopy cover reduces pollution and helps to combat climate change. Skokie has been designated as a Tree City USA since 1985.
