50/50 Tree Program Deadline September 13th

50/50 Tree Program Deadline - September 13th

The 50/50 Tree Program orders must be received by Friday, September 13, 2019. Through the 50/50 Parkway Tree Program, the United City of Yorkville shares the cost of planting trees with homeowners. Residents simply choose the tree they want and send in a check for the cost listed on the order form. The City does the rest. This program will continue on an annual basis, and planting will occur at the fall of each year.  The Parkway Tree Program is intended to provide quality shade trees to residents within the City to be planted within the rights-of-way along the streets and corridors throughout the City. To participate in the program, download and mail the 50/50 Parkway Tree Application Form (PDF) along with payment, or stop by City Hall at 800 Game Farm Road, Yorkville, IL.  For more information, along with a list of available tree options, please visit: https://www.yorkville.il.us/191/5050-Parkway-Tree-Program
