Parkway Tree Replacement Program

The Village is happy to announce the creation of a cost-sharing program for residential parkway tree replacement.  The program was developed to assist the homeowners of Shorewood with the expense of replacing their parkway tree(s) when the tree(s) has been removed due to damage, insect infestation, disease, or death.  Funds available for the program vary annually with budget approval, are on a first come first serve basis, and will be approved based on funds remaining for the program.  The Parkway Tree Replacement Program includes the complete details and requirements for the parkway tree removal process and Replacement Program.

Before removing any parkway tree, the homeowner must complete a Parkway Tree Program Application and receive approval to do so.  The homeowner should NOT purchase the tree until the application has been approved by the Village.  Approved replacement tree applications will be reimbursed 50% of the cost of the tree, up to a maximum of $150 per tree.  A species guide listing acceptable parkway trees within the Village of Shorewood is provided to assist in the proper choice of a parkway tree for the property.
