The application for the 50/50 Parkway Tree Program becomes available mid-summer of each year.
The Village of Deerfield is a member of the Suburban Tree Consortium, which enables us to obtain high-quality trees at competitive pricing. Most of our trees will be ordered from Wilson Nurseries, Inc. The trees that we offer in the program are 2” in diameter. Applications due by August 31. This is a first come, first served program with a limited amount of each tree.
50 / 50 Program
The Village will pay half the cost to plant a tree in the parkway. Your tree will be balled in burlap, guaranteed for one year, and planted by the Public Works Department. Trees will be planted in the fall. Trees will be planted in the parkway and cannot be planted on private property. Watch your tree next summer and, if you notice any problems, call us so we can have the tree examined before the guarantee expires. .
You may wish to do some research before selecting a tree for your parkway. Two websites that may be helpful are Arbor Day - of the National Foundation
and Morton Arboretum
