Tree Program / Forestry

Each fall the City conducts a 50/50 tree program that offers certain shade trees and ornamental trees to be planted in the front yards or parkways of properties within the corporate limits of Sycamore. The City pays 50% of the cost of each tree, plants the tree, and guarantees them for one year.

Year-round the City Clerk's office compiles names, telephone numbers, and email addresses of those interested in participating in the program. Once the program begins, tree brochures are emailed to that list, posted on this website, and are available in the Clerk's office at 308 W State Street, Sycamore, IL. Office hours are 8:30 am to 5 pm.
