Tree of the Year Recognition Program
The Environmental and Health Commission is happy to announce the Tree of The Year Recognition program. In July, the Board of Trustees approved the program that will begin immediately. The Village Board recognizes the importance that trees have in the community and has established a tree preservation ordinance. The community has also received the designation of Tree City USA for the past 20 years.
The Tree of The Year program recognizes the value trees have in the community by mitigating the impacts of climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide, increasing property values, reducing energy costs, and improving mental and physical health to the Village residents.
If you want to nominate your tree for this recognition or if you know of a tree in the community that you feel has significant beauty, has a historical significance or a story of interest, or is of exceptional size, form, or rarity we encourage you to nominate the tree.
The winning tree will be announced and recognized at a public meeting in April 2023 during the Arbor Day celebration.
Program guidelines can be found here.
Please note the deadline for nominating a tree is November 1, 2022.
