Free Parkway Trees for Spring 2019

In order to recover from the tree canopy losses caused by the Emerald Ash borer, the Village of Skokie, in cooperation with the Sustainable Environmental Advisory and Beautification & Improvement Commissions, are excited to extend the free parkway tree program through spring of 2019.  Trees increase property values, lower energy costs and clean the air.  Free parkway trees are available for houses and multi-unit residential buildings, businesses, religious congregations, schools and other properties.  If interested, please call 847/933-8427.  A Village forester will evaluate your parkway to determine if you have an adequate space for a tree.  Eligible property owners will receive a list of available tree choices and will be required to water the tree for two years.  This is limited supply, so call now!
