"Tree for All" Tree Giveaway

Graphic providing details about the Village's Tree for All tree sapling giveaway

The Village takes great pride in our landscape and abundant trees, as demonstrated by our recognition as a Tree City USA designee by the National Arbor Day Foundation for more than 20 consecutive years.

Unfortunately, many of the beautiful trees that line our parkways, yards and open spaces were affected by the Emerald Ash Borer beetles that found their way to Channahon years ago. In 2014, the Village launched a proactive campaign to remove and replace affected trees - an effort which, due to its immensity, is still ongoing today. 

As part of the effort to replace those trees and in conjunction with our 60th anniversary celebration this year, the Village is excited to announce our inaugural Tree for All tree sapling giveaway. We have purchased 1,000 tree saplings for our residents to plant in their yards to help keep Channahon beautiful for another 60-plus years. There will be a variety of saplings to choose from, including:

  • Black Hills Spruce
  • Blue Spruce
  • Eastern White Pine
  • Redbud
  • Red Maple
  • Scarlet Oak
  • Sugar Maple
  • Tuliptree
  • White Dogwood

These tree saplings were fully funded by fees paid for tree removal by Crow Holdings when they built the industrial building that is now home to Camso/Michelin. Village ordinance requires that when trees can't be replaced on a site after development, a payment must be made for the Village enabling us to plant trees elsewhere in the community.

The giveaway will be on a first come, first serve basis, with a limit of one sapling per resident. We do not yet have a firm arrival date for the saplings, so the exact date and time of the giveaway will be announced at a future date. Keep an eye on our website and social media pages for more details!
