Between mid January and early February, contractors with the Village of Glenview pruned 3,573 trees – about 870 trees more than expected, according to the village.
Glenview residents also turned in 330 Christmas trees for recycling. Glenview Park District chipped some 260 trees that were collected at the five parks and the village collected 69 trees from condo associations and will use those trees for Lake Glenview.
In December, the village contracted with Trees R Us in a joint bid with the Village of Wilmette, to trim parkway trees in northeast Glenview this winter. The trimming is done on an eight-year cycle.
