It’s not fall yet, but residents of the City of St. Charles should plan now to take advantage of the City’s “50/50 Parkway Tree Planting Program” for the fall. Residents can request a new parkway tree and the City will help pay half the cost of the tree and plant it for you. Please note: Parkways must be reviewed and approved for planting by the Public Works Department before a tree order will be placed.

“Maintaining a diverse mix of trees is important to the overall vitality of our tree population,” said Public Works Manager A.J. Reineking. “We’ve reviewed our 50/50 program this year to further enhance the diversity of the City’s urban forest.”

·         Cherry Dogwood $115–Good under power lines

·         Allegheny Serviceberry $150–Good under power lines

·         China Snow Lilac $155–Good under power lines

·         Bald Cypress $170

·         Red Oak  $170

To request a review of your parkway, contact the Public Works Department at 630.377.4405 or email by August 15, 2016. Once approved, you will receive a confirmation letter, order form and details on how to order a tree.
