PLEASE REMOVE THAT DEAD TREE!
There are many reasons why trees in our area suddenly or
slowly die. These reasons can
range from previous storm damage to disease or insect
infestation. Our community’s natural wooded setting is the
main ingredient that separates the Park from surrounding
towns and Villages. Residents should be proactive in
removing dead trees and shrubs from their properties as
quickly as possible. Dead trees that are not properly
removed can harbor diseases such as “Oak Wilt” and “Dutch
Elms Disease”, which can be easily spread to surrounding
trees through root systems and insects. That dead tree in
your yard is a liability to you and your property. Dead
trees may suddenly shed limbs or trunks that could
potentially hurt or fatally injure a loved one or passing
pedestrian. Please don’t try to remove large trees, leave
large tree removals to tree contractors that are properly
experienced and fully insured.
You can contact the Village office at 708-448-2700 for a
list of licensed tree contractors.
