How do I get a tree planted in the parkway?

There are three options for replacing a tree:

  • The village will replace at 100% cost for purchase and planting in the order trees are removed. Village selects the species, current waiting list is approximately 5 to 7 years.
  • Resident can chose a tree from 5 to 6 options at each planting season - Spring and Fall. The Village pays for planting and will deliver, mulch and add a water bag to the tree. Resident pays our wholesale price for tree, roughly $250 to $300. Residents may pick from our offerings - on a first come bases.
  • Residents can purchase a tree of 2 inch caliper or greater diameter at Hinsdale Nursery and have them plant the tree. Hinsdale is aware of the appropriate Village parkway trees. Resident incurs all costs associated with tree planting and is able to choose the specific tree and species. View acceptable parkway tree list.
