Village Tree Board

The Village of Hinsdale takes great pride in its urban forest and its designation as a Tree City USA honoree.  

Guidelines for trees and shrubs within Village boundaries are included in Title 7, Chapter 2 of the Village code.  Any resident wishing to remove a tree in a public right-of-way must abide by the provisions of the code.  In cases where residents are requesting to remove a tree that does not meet the Village's administrative requirements for removal, these cases are heard by the Village Tree Board.  

The Village Tree Board meets on an ad hoc basis to hear cases relating to public trees.  The Tree Board is comprised of four sitting Village Trustees.  Actions of the Village Tree Board are final and binding.
