The City of Elgin is dedicated to the protection, preservation, and maintenance of the community’s urban forest. The city’s Forestry operation is responsible for maintaining trees located in the treebank as well as trees located in city parks and other municipal facilities.

Elgin is recognized as a Sterling Tree City U.S.A. from the National Arbor Day Foundation for the city’s ongoing efforts in this area.

Mulch Delivery and Distribution

The city will no longer be offering the mulch program this year. Due to the limited resources available in the Forestry Division, it has been determined they need to focus their energy on maintaining the urban forest and not delivering wood chips to private residences. We apologize for any inconvenience.
