For a fee, the City of Champaign will plant a tree in your neighborhood


CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — If you live in Champaign, you can get the city to plant a tree in your neighborhood.

It’s called the “Share-the-Cost” program.

Crews will plant shade trees on the public right-of-way for $135.

City employees will then take care of the mulching and watering.

“There’s just a lot of room in town where there haven’t been trees historically where there’s space to do so and it’s just a way for residents that at a reasonable cost to add trees where there wasn’t one before,” said Andrew Lamoreux, the city’s forestry supervisor.

Planting takes place during the fall and spring.
