50/50 Tree Program

50/50 Tree Program & W-9


The Tree Replacement Program is a cost-sharing program encouraging property owners to plant new trees on their property. The planting of new trees improves air quality, enhances the visual aesthetic of the community, and betters the quality of life for residents.

The following parameters pertain to participation in the Tree Replacement Program:

  • Residents are reimbursed 50% of the cost of a single new tree, excluding sales tax, delivery, and installation, not to exceed $200.
  • The tree must be planted in the front yard of the home or the parkway.
  • Program dollars are disbursed as a reimbursement after the purchase and installation of a new tree.
  • Each household may participate in the program once every other year.

Residents wishing to participate in this partnership program must submit a paid receipt itemizing the cost of the tree, exclusive of sales tax, delivery, and installation, a completed W-9, and a picture of the new tree.

Receipts can be mailed to or dropped off at:  Volo Village Hall, 500 S. Fish Lake Rd., Volo, IL 60073
