The areas to be planted each year have been prioritized based on several different criteria, including the timing of the removal, density of trees lost, stormwater impacts and population.
Areas throughout the Village where ash and other trees were removed prior to 2014, as well as the West Quadrant and portions of the North Quadrant from the 2014 EAB removal
South Quadrant and portions of the North Quadrant from 2014 EAB removal
East Quadrant from 2014 EAB removal and any remaining planting needs, including plantable non-EAB related resident requests

Trees will be replanted in the same location where they were removed only in cases where planting is feasible and the location is still valid based on our updated planting guidelines.
For example, large tree roots or a street light in close proximity to the planting site may prevent a tree from being planted in the exact spot where one was removed. In these cases, the project team will need to adjust the location accordingly. If no suitable planting location can be found, the planting site may need to be eliminated as a last resort.
Tree mortality is an inevitable part of large tree planting projects. The Village project team will be inspecting each tree on multiple occasions during the planting season and the contractor warranty period to verify the trees are in good health. In the unfortunate event that one of the trees planted in the public parkway near your home does not survive or declines into poor condition, it will be removed and replaced in the following planting season. Due to species availability constraints and planting season restrictions, replacement trees will not necessarily be the same species as the previous tree that failed.
