Districtwide - Tree Trimming

The project will provide for a one-year professional services contract for  tree maintenance.

Project Need

As forest preserve infrastructure continues to develop (new picnic and off-leash dog areas, 70 new miles of trails over the past 18 years, etc.) more trees require scheduled maintenance to meet Forest Preserve District standards. This coupled with a spike in tree mortality from emerald ash borers, severe storms, oak wilt and other causes has shifted crew responsibilities from planned maintenance schedules to day-to-day scheduling to address hazardous trees and other urgent issues as they arise. The project will allow the Forest Preserve District to ensure pending tree maintenance is completed so its high standards can continue to be met.


The project is in progress.
