Resident Tree Planting Program

Beautify Your Home by Planting Trees


The Town of Normal encourages Normal residents to plant trees to either replace previously existing trees or just beautify their yard and neighborhood. Residents are eligible for up to $60 toward the purchase of a tree for their property. Some restrictions do apply:
  • Trees planted on public or private property must be within thirty feet of public streets or right of way, and provide sufficient public benefit to justify the expenditure of public funds.
  • A Permit [PDF] is required for trees planted in the easement (between the sidewalk and street).
  • Check the Recommended and Restricted Tree [PDF] list before purchasing your tree.
  • Complete and submit the Application [PDF].
Please contact the Parks and Recreation Office at (309) 454-9540 for more information.
