Each year, the Flossmoor Public Works Department identifies space in the Parkway adjacent to homes where there is room to plant trees. Postcards are sent to those residents inviting them to "Share the Cost" of a Tree. Flossmoor’s Shared Cost Parkway Tree Program is a 50/50 cost-sharing program that gives residents the opportunity to purchase a tree for their parkway at half of the cost, with the Village paying for the other half. This is a wonderful way to add beauty and enhance the property values of our community. All species available are conducive to parkway planting and soil conditions in our area. A list with descriptions, to assist in selecting trees for your parkway, is listed below. The trees are professionally planted by a local nursery. The trunks of most species will be at least two-inches in diameter, and all trees carry a one-year guarantee. If you did not receive a postcard but believe you have space in the parkway adjacent to your home and you would like to be considered for the next planting opportunity, please contact Public Works at 708-957-4100.
