The Village of Franklin Grove, IL, invites you to plant a free tree!

The village purchased 20 trees, including sugar maples and hackberries, for people to plant between their sidewalk and the street. Our beautiful old maples are living on borrowed time and we need to replenish our natural forest. Tree-lined roads improve curb appeal, and trees cool off our streets to cut your energy bills.
Get your free tree by calling Nick Sprague at 973-0705 today. We'll even plant it for you.

Help keep the grove in Franklin Grove - plant a tree today!
