Tree Services, Free Mulch

In addition to planting trees via OurRoots/Chicago, the Bureau of Forestry, a division of Chicago's Department of Streets & Sanitation, is responsible for tree trimming, removing dead or damaged trees, and resulting debris after inclement weather. It recycles the debris into construction-grade lumber and wood chips sold to vendors.

For residents, wood chips are free as mulch per availability, at the four locations at left, from
6:30 AM to 2 PM weekly.

Use CHI 311 for service requests.
