Due to the emerald ash borer, the 45th Ward is losing many trees, 113 since January alone.
When a tree is removed, a tree planting request is not automatically generated. If homeowners would like the tree replaced, they should call my office at (773) 286-4545, or 311, to request a replacement.
When we are aware of blocks losing five or more trees, my office coordinates with the Bureau of Forestry to prioritize tree planting on those blocks. So far, those blocks are the 5000- and 5100-block of West Cullom, the 5000-block of West Dakin, and the 5200-block of West Winona.
If you would like a tree planted in front of your home, please contact us at (773) 286-4545 or email my office.
