The Village owns the tree if it is located in that area. A continuous list is kept at Village Hall of residents who would like to have a tree planted in front of their home. If you are interested, please call Village Hall at 738-2015. When a tree is planted we ask that you care for it by watering it for the first few months after it is planted. The trimming and removal of diseased or dead trees is the Village's responsibility. Please call Village Hall if you have a problem with your tree.
