Tree Opportunity

Update: This event has been postponed until spring due to a variety of barriers. More information to come.

The Midtown Neighborhood Alliance (MNA) is working with midtown neighborhood associations to provide free trees for city property. That includes us, Aksarben Elmwood Park Neighborhood Association (AEPNA)!

Here is how it works:

  • If you would like a tree for your space between the sidewalk/corner and street, submit your information by using the link to the form below.
  • MNA will evaluate your space to determine what would work best at your location and if more than 1 tree would be appropriate
  • Trees will be delivered to AEPNA, at a designated location for you to pick up and plant
    • You will be notified of pick-up day and time

The list of those interested will be submitted to MNA mid-September. Please submit information as soon as possible. Questions: E-mail Jan at:
