Terrace Trees

Terrace trees are the trees that are located between the sidewalk and curb in front of your property. These trees are typically installed by the developer when the subdivision is created. It is the homeowners responsibility to maintain these trees. The Village will, from time to time, trim any trees that encroach upon the street Right-of-way. Once a tree has died, the Village will remove the tree and grind out the stump. It is then the homeowners choice to leave the space empty, or to replant a replacement tree at their expense. The homeowner will need to fill out a Forestry Permit and submit it to the Village for approval. Included with the permit is a list of approved as well as prohibited terrace trees along with some guidelines for placement. Any questions, please contact Jim Madden at (608) 850-8500.
