Parkway Tree Replacement Program

2017 Parkway Tree Program

Public Works will begin taking orders February 13 for the spring planting season.

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 served 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. Final planting locations will be determined by the Village.

Public Works will begin taking orders February 13 for the spring planting season.

Order forms (see the link below), with checks 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.

Parkway Tree Order Form

The Village does allow homeowners to plant trees in the parkway themselves. However, a permit must be filled out and approved by the Village arborist. The tree must be planted by a licensed contractor, and the homeowner is responsible for the entire cost of the tree and installation; there is no cost sharing with the Village. The permit can be found below.
