Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the spring planting through the Village’s Parkway Tree Planting Program has been postponed and will take place this fall.  Anyone that currently has a tree order for Spring 2020, will be placed in the Fall 2020 planting cycle. 


Parkway Tree Planting

Parkway tree planting usually occurs during the months of April or May for spring planting.

Place your order now to secure your tree planting order at the soonest planting date and increase your chances of obtaining your first selection!  Quantities of certain species of trees are limited in order to increase the diversity of our forest. Some species we planted in the past are no longer being planted in Oak Lawn due to lack of success of those trees. Please call the Village of Oak Lawn Forestry Division as soon as possible to reserve your first choice.

Application and payment must be turned into the Cashier's Desk at the Village Hall by 3/31/2020, for Spring planting.

treesTogether we can keep Oak Lawn’s Village forest growing.

If you have any further questions, contact the Village Forester, at 708-499-7098.
