Storm damage

Storm damage that affects parkway trees is the responsibility of the City's Forestry section. Private trees that fall on to the City's Right of Way is the responsibility of the property owner. Trees that fall on to power lines need to be addressed by ComEd crews "link" (1800-Edison1). To report parkway tree storm damage please click here. "link to storm damage form"
