2014 50/50 Tree Planting Program
For the 2014-15 budget year, the Village Board has allocated funds to replace parkway trees in an effort to preserve the tree canopy and diversify the tree species within the boundaries of the Village of Libertyville. A 50/50 cost share replacement tree program has been approved.

We encourage all residents that have had their parkway trees removed to participate in this effort. This is a replacement program only and is intended to replace trees that have been removed in the Village parkways.

In order to help alleviate the possibility of future diseases/insects from destroying so many of our trees it has become necessary to limit quantities on the tree choices. This will ensure that we don’t overplant a species and our future population is more diverse. Please prioritize your preference(s), ex 1, 2, and 3, (number 1) being your first choice. Please follow all directions on the order form. All attempts will be made to honor your first choice. If we are unable to process your first choice we will make every effort to contact you to discuss optional choices.  

Village staff has compiled a list of 12 trees that we will be offering in our fall tree planting program. A list of these trees along with some useful information about them has been included. Please indicate the tree(s) you would like to order and submit your remittance to the Village of Libertyville 200 E. Cook Ave. Libertyville, IL. 60048 attn: Laura Ditanto. Please have your order form and location sketches back to us no later than September 20, 2014.  Late submittals will be returned.

The resident cost per tree is indicated on the form. The Village will match your cost per tree ordered. This is for a minimum 2 ½ inch caliper tree planted and warranted for 1 year. The trees will be supplied and planted by Acres Group.

If you need assistance in placing your order or would like help in locating the tree on your parkway please contact Jim Barlow at 847-918-2076.
