Through its long-running Parkway Tree Program, the Village of Bartlett, with the help of homeowners, has planted trees to reforest and diversify Bartlett’s parkways. This 50/50 shared program provides the opportunity for residents to select and purchase a parkway tree, with the Village contributing 50 percent of the cost.
All trees available for order are 2-inches in diameter. The cost for residents per tree is $100, which includes planting, mulching and a one year warranty. Limited quantities of each species are available, and all orders are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Due to the need for tree diversification, the Village will not be planting any maple species this year.
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. Planting is only done in the parkway, not on private property. Trees must be spaced 30 to 40 feet apart. Other restrictions, such as proximity to driveways, street lights, hydrants, storm sewers, etc. may occur. Final planting locations will be determined by the Village. Public Works will begin taking orders on February 19, 2018 for the spring planting season.
Visit the Public Works Department Parkway Tree Replacement Program webpage to see the available tree species, photos and ordering information. Orders must be received by April 30, 2018. The Village will not be offering this program in the fall, so this will be your only opportunity to have a parkway tree planted in 2018.
