Tree Removal Process in the Village of Lincolnwood, IL
The policy of the Village is to balance the private property rights of landowners with the public health, safety, and welfare that is promoted by the existence and maintenance of trees. Prior to removing any tree that is eight inches or greater in diameter on private property, residents are required to obtain a tree removal permit from the Community Development Department. Further, residents that wish to remove any tree that is greater than eight inches in diameter and that is outside of the building envelope will be required to plant replacement trees on the property or pay a fee to the Village for the planting of new parkway trees.
Trees that constitute a threat, danger, nuisance, or that may be dangerous to the health of other trees in the Village may be removed without fulfilling the tree replacement requirements and requires a permit from the Community Development Department. The penalty for removal of a tree without a permit is a fine of not more than $1,000 and the imposition of a tree replacement fee which is $150 per diameter inch of tree removed.
