Morton Grove is once again offering residents an opportunity to participate in the Village: 50/50 Tree Planting Program.
The 50/50 Tree Planting Program works like this; if you choose a certain type of tree that you would like to be planted in the parkway, you can do so by paying 50% of the cost. The Village of Morton Grove will pay the other 50% of the cost. This year’s the cost for the resident is $60.00 per tree.
