Winter Tree Trimming to Start January

Tree Trimming

The Village of Deerfield Public Works Department is responsible for trimming parkway trees for traffic clearance purposes, to preserve the tree’s health and appearance and to prevent possible damage to human life and property.

The Village has established a 4-year cycle for the parkway tree trimming program. Deerfield is divided into quadrants with Deerfield Road as the north/south divider and Waukegan Road the east/west divider. One of these quadrants is maintained each year.

This winter, the northeast quadrant is scheduled to be trimmed. Trimming work is scheduled for the dormant season to avoid unnecessary damage or trauma to the tree.

Trimming is done in accordance with professional standards and may include cutting lower limbs for clearance and thinning of the crown.
