A dead or dying tree on your property is unsightly and, more importantly, can result in injury or property damage. If there is a distressed or dead tree on your property please remove it to prevent harm and to avoid liability for damages.
Many ash trees are infected with emerald ash borers which destroy the area between the bark and the trunk killing the tree. Infected trees must be removed pursuant to Village Code 8-8-1 which provides:
In accordance with 65 Illinois Compiled Statutes 5/11-20-11 through 11-20-13, trees of all species and varieties that are determined by laboratory analysis and/or field inspection to be diseased or infested are hereby declared to be a public nuisance, and shall be removed and disposed of in an acceptable manner within ten (10) days following notification of the discovery of such infestation. This includes, but is not limited to, infestations of the insects commonly known as European elm bark beetle (Dutch elm disease) or emerald ash borer.
Please take care of your trees and remove those which are infested before a nuisance is declared.
