Elburn now accepting 50/50 Parkway Tree Program applications

By on March 24, 2012

ELBURN—The village of Elburn is currently accepting applications for the 50/50 Parkway Tree Program for spring and fall 2012. The village is offering this program based on a cooperative agreement where the village contributes half of the cost, and the homeowner contributes the other half.

Funding is limited and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Homeowners can choose tree from an approved list. Trees range in price from $90 to $145 for the homeowners portion. Homeowners must contact Jenna Cook at jcook@elburn.il.us to obtain this list, as supplies of trees may vary season to season. Approved lists are updated on a regular basis to ensure quality and satisfaction.

Applications and more information are available at the village website www.elburn.il.us, or you can contact Cook at (630) 365-5064.

    I’ve never paid that much for a tree paying for the entire thing myself.

    RM they are not talking about plastic trees. I used this program two years ago and got two wonderful red oaks. It is a great program and I encourage residents to use it since the money in the budget for new trees are not there and you will be waiting a long time.

    And you better do it quick. This (as well as other nice-to-haves) will probably be one of the programs on the chopping block since the police pension levy did not pass.
