Tree Care, Brush & Leaf Collection

Tree Care

New trees, which will be planted throughout the Village, need care.

Please water these trees five (5) gallons every 4 to 5 days during dry spells.

When mowing and trimming around trees, please avoid hitting the base of the tree.

There are quite a few terrace trees with bark torn from the base, due to mowing and trimming too close to the tree.  If this occurs too often, there is a good chance the tree will die.

When a terrace tree dies, the replacement time could take up to 5 years, due to commitments in other areas of the community.

VALUE OF STREET TREES

Brush Pick Up

Residents must call the Street Department (788-7507) or Village Clerk's Office (788-7500) by 4:00 PM Wednesday, to schedule a Thursday brush collection.

Brush which is shorter than 6 inches in length is considered yard waste and needs to be disposed of through yard waste collection.

Leaf Pickup

Leaf pick up will begin on or about October 1 and continue as long as weather permits or the leaves are all collected.

Rake leaves to the terrace, not into the street, DO NOT put leaves in bags. Leaves, which are placed in bags or any container - WILL NOT BE PICKED UP.

Do not rake twigs or branches with the leaves, they will clog the vacuum.

Please keep plastic and paper out of the piles.

Rake leaves into low piles so children are not hidden from motorist's view.

Pick up will start at the west-end of the Village and move east, completing as soon as possible.
It takes about two weeks to make one round of the entire village, so please be patient and rake accordingly.

Leaf Pick-up Street Route

Please be aware that the street sweeper is different from the leaf vacuum. The sweeper only sweeps streets, not piles of leaves.
