Spring Trees

Post Date:02/10/2017

Through its long-running Parkway Tree Program, the Village of Bartlett has shared the cost of planting trees with homeowners in an effort to reforest Bartlett’s parkways. This program has been accelerated in recent years due to the devastation caused by the Emerald Ash Borer infestation in Illinois. The Village continues its commitment to reforestation and diversification by offering a large number of tree species again this year.

All trees available for order are 2 inches in diameter, at a cost of $50 per tree. Due to the fixed number of trees, orders will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. If the tree you order sells out, you will be contacted to make another selection.

You are only eligible to purchase a tree if you had a tree removed from your parkway or have the space for one to be planted. Trees must be spaced 30 to 40 feet apart. Other restrictions, such as proximity to street lights, hydrants, storm sewers, etc. may occur. Planting locations will be determined by the Village.

Public Works will begin taking orders February 13 for the spring planting season. Please see the Parkway Tree Replacement webpage for a photo album of the trees available or call Public Works, 630-837-0811, for more information. A completed Tree Order Form with check made payable to the Village of Bartlett, must be received by April 28. Please mail orders to: Parkway Tree Program, Bartlett Public Works, 1150 Bittersweet Dr, Bartlett, IL 60103.
