Winter is the dormant season for trees and usually the best time to trim or prune a tree. This winter, the Village is trimming Village trees in Maintenance Zone 1 & 2, which is generally all Village owned, 16”+ diameter, parkway trees NORTH of Main Street. Bensenville contracted with Winkler’s Tree Service to trim 16” and larger diameter trees. After the trees are trimmed they may look barren until new spring growth occurs. History has proven that proper tree trimming is vital to maintain the appearance and health of the urban forest.
Trees are trimmed for improved Aesthetics, Safety and Health.
