Geneva residents interested in a new parkway tree should place their order with the Public Works Department by Friday, Jan. 6, 2017.
Parkway trees are defined as trees within the City's right-of-way, usually located between the sidewalk/property line and curb.
Through a contract with West Suburban Tree Consortium, the City is able to purchase trees at a discounted rate. Residents pay $150 as part of the cost-sharing program, and the City covers the remaining cost to purchase and plant a new tree. The City's portion is more than $150.
A list of available trees can be found on the City's website
along with a form that must be submitted to Public Works. There is a limited number of trees and species that can be planted each spring, so requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
For more information, call the Geneva Public Works Department Streets & Fleet Division at 630-232-1502.
