Adopt A Planter Program

Registration is currently full. You may still submit an application to be added to the waiting list.

The Community Relations Commission invites all Village residents and businesses to participate in the Village’s 2020 Winter Adopt A Planter Program. This Fall, the Village’s Public Works department has planted live evergreen trees in the large Village planters located at the train station, Civic Center, and along Dempster Street and Waukegan Road and adoptees will decorate and care for the tree during the winter. Next Spring, participants can sign up to take their tree home to plant. This program is FREE; but removal in the Spring must be coordinated with the Village to safeguard the planters.

Click here to register. As in the past, businesses will be given priority to adopt the planter closest to their store or office. Please indicate in the comment section of the registration form if you would like to adopt a planter in a particular area and- we will try to accommodate your request.

Registration ends November 15, 2020. Planters will be assigned by November 20, and we ask that all trees be decorated before December 1.

Adopting a planter is an excellent way for individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and other groups to show pride in our community, help keep our Village beautiful and festive this winter, and plant and nurture more trees throughout the Village.
