What can I do to ensure the success of this program?

The Village asks that residents assist in watering parkway trees after they are planted. Village Public Works crews work long hours each week to maintain and water these trees after they are planted, but resident assistance goes a long ways to ensuring the health of these newly planted trees.

Residents are also able to purchase a larger tree than the Village-provided tree for a small additional fee. Larger trees provide some added benefits and residents are able to take advantage of the Village's contracts to obtain a larger tree for a smaller cost than what it would normally cost them to purchase on their own.
