Storm Damage/ Tree Removal Companies

  • In the event of a storm, the Village is responsible for the clean up and removal of fallen branches and debris from trees located in Village parkways.

The removal of branches and debris which comes from private trees and vegetation is the responsibility of the property owner. The Village will not pick up private vegetation stacked in the parkway.

Residents may dispose of tree debris through the Village’s Yard Waste Collection program or a licensed tree company.

  • In the event of a storm declared to be of catastrophic proportions, procedures outlined in Resolution 2004-59 will be enacted. Information regarding the disposal of storm debris under these special circumstances will be made available through the Village website, Village corner, DGTV Channel 6 and posted at Village Hall, the Library, and the train stations.

Village-Licensed Tree Removal Companies

Companies performing tree removal activities in the Village of Downers Grove need to have a tree removal license per Municipal Codes 8-71 to 8-74. Tree Removal Licenses are INVALID without insurance. The date shown reflects the information on file with the Village. Consumers should ask to see a current certificate of insurance. 

This license must be renewed every calendar year, and a certificate of insurance must be provided. Consumers may also want to ask tree removal companies how many staff members are Certified Arborists. A Certified Arborist has passed a national test on arboriculture and tree care through the International Society of Arboriculture, and annually attends seminars and classes to retain this certification. A license can be obtained by completing the Tree Removal License Application.
