Tree Planting In Public Parkway

The Village of Homer Glen recognizes that trees are an important asset and add value to our community.  Trees help us conserve energy, clean the air, protect rivers and streams, and provide a habitat for wildlife.  Parkway trees add beauty to our streets and neighborhoods.  To beautify the Village parkways and enhance Homer Glen’s urban canopy the Village has created a public parkway tree replacement program.

If you have had a tree removed from the parkway adjacent to your property and would like a new tree planted as a replacement, please contact the Village Hall.
