With warmer weather approaching, I reached out to the Public Works Department for an update on parkway trees for this season. Kathy with Public Works has informed me that more dead ash trees will be removed after May 1st. Once they are cut down, the Village will come back and grind the stumps. The Village will replace them, but they cannot guarantee that they will be replaced this year ( this year according to the Village means May 2015-April 2016). They have limited funds for this work and will do as much as they can. If an owner does not want to wait until the Village has funds to replace the parkway trees, an owner can replace them on their own at their cost, but must get approval from Public Works first as they have a list of approved trees.
