Community Tree Planting Day Oct. 8

BAPA is building a team of volunteers to help fill in our parkways and rebuild our tree canopy on Sat., Oct. 8. We will meet at 9 am at Sutherland Elementary School, 10015 S. Leavitt St., and spread out from there to plant trees across our beautiful neighborhood. Please help! You can start by subscribing to our Tree Planting Team texts below. We will send updates and instructions as the date approaches. 

Parkway Tree Request

Would you like to have a tree in your parkway? Thanks to a partnership between BAPA and the Alderman’s office, you can get one planted next month! 

BUT you have to request it in September. Here’s how:

  1. Visit https://311.chicago.gov/ 
  2. Under “Service Request,” choose  “Park, Trees, & Environment,” then “Trees,” and “Tree Planting Request.”
  3. Submit your address and request a tree for your parkway.
  4. Your free tree will be planted as part of the 19th Ward Community Tree Planting Day Saturday, October 8, 2022.

Thank you for being a steward of the environment and expanding the tree canopy in Beverly/Morgan Park!
