Through its long-running Parkway Tree Program, the Village of Bartlett has planted trees with the help of homeowners in an effort 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 sharing in 50 percent of the cost.
September 30, 2019 was the last day that Bartlett Public Works accepted orders for Fall 2019 parkway tree planting. The program will resume next year.
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.
