50/50 Parkway Tree Replacement Program


The Village is happy to announce the creation of a 50/50 cost sharing program for residential parkway tree replacement.  The program was developed to assist the homeowners of Shorewood with the expense of replacing their parkway tree(s) when the tree(s) has been removed due to damage, insect infestation, disease or death.  Funds available for the program vary annually with budget approval, are on a first come first serve basis and will be approved based on funds remaining for the program.  The 50/50 Parkway Tree Replacement Program includes the complete details and requirements for the parkway tree removal process and 50/50 Replacement Program.

Prior to removing any parkway tree, the homeowner must  complete a Parkway Tree Removal Application and receive approval to do so.  If interested in the 50/50 Parkway Tree Replacement Program, the homeowner must complete the 50/50 Parkway Tree Planting Application.  The homeowner should NOT purchase the tree until the application has been approved by the Village.  Approved replacement tree applications will be reimbursement at 50% of the cost of the parkway tree, up to a maximum of $125 per tree.  A species guide listing acceptable parkway trees within the Village of Shorewood is provided to assist in the proper chosing of a parkway tree for the property.
