With more than 15,000 trees growing in the parkway, the Village of Northbrook has been recognized as a Tree City U.S.A. community since 1994, and received the Tree City Growth Award from the Arbor Day Foundation 11 times since 1998 for replanting parkway trees. To maintain the Village's parkway trees maintenance workers, supervisors, a Village Forester, and a superintendent respond to resident requests about parkway trees and proactively manage the Village's urban forest.
