The Village of South Holland will pay up to half the cost ($150 maximum) for the purchase and planting of a new tree for the parkway (limit 2/home), with the homeowner paying all remaining costs.
There is a limited budget per year, so applications will be received on a first come, first served basis.
To participate in the program, residents must fill out this application and return it in one of these ways:
1. Fill out and submit the online form below
2. Via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Via fax at 708.331.4637
4. In person to the Public Works office (16226 Wausau Avenue, Building C) from 7am to 3:30pm Monday through Friday
Residents MUST select from the pre-determined tree species listed on the brochure.
Once the application is received, the proposed tree location will be inspected by the Village Arborist to determine if it meets the criteria for participation.
Trees should be planted 30-40 feet apart from other trees, 4 feet from any curb or sidewalk, and 30 feet from intersections. The Village Arborist will make final determination on tree species and location.
Once approved, the homeowner will work directly with the Village contracted nursery to arrange payment and all details pertaining to the planting.
For reimbursement after planting, the homeowner is eligible to submit the Parkway Tree Reimbursement form along with a copy of the bill (paid in full) and return it in person to the Public Works office (16226 Wausau Avenue, Building C) between 7am and 3:30pm Monday through Friday.
