The Village of Palatine offers to residents a fine selection of deciduous parkway trees on a 50/50 cost basis. The Village pays half of the cost of the tree and the resident pays the second half. The cost of the tree includes planting and a one-year guarantee with one replacement, if necessary. This program is available for spring and fall plantings. Included in the program are trees designated specifically for planting underneath overhead power lines. By planting types of trees that grow to a lower height under power lines, we will be able to avoid severe pruning of the tree when it grows larger and conflicts with the utility lines. Planting locations will be reviewed and approved by the Village Forester. Please call Public Works at 847-705-5200 for more information.
Note: Trees ordered can only be planted in the parkway. Trees will be ordered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Due to the limited size of the tree program, priority on tree choice will be determined by time and date of receipt of order and payment.
Please be aware that if a tree has been removed from the parkway by the Village, a new tree will be planted at no charge to the resident. We work with specific quantities and varieties to diversify the urban forest.
