50/50 Residential Parkway Tree Replacement Program
The Village of Huntley’s 50/50 Tree Reimbursement Program provides up to $325 in funding assistance for Huntley residents to encourage the planting of trees throughout the public right-of-way in the Village.  Planting trees improves the environment, and it is a simple, cost effective way for residents to participate in the enhancement of their local neighborhoods while maintaining a healthy community of trees throughout the Village.

If you had a tree planted last year, remember to remove the staking on the tree.  Stakes should be in for no more than 1.5 years.  Keeping the stakes in longer is bad for the health and growth of the tree.
