They'll work with you to choose a tree-care event date and a staging area where tools and mulch can be distributed. The Prospect Heights Street Tree Task Force will provide the cultivators, trowels, shovels, wheelbarrows, mulch, certified tree pruners, and other helpful neighbors to get the job done.
