In early 2007, Glenview’s Natural Resources Commission launched the Heritage Tree Program. The program is modeled after the Big Tree registries that are maintained on state and national level to recognize and celebrate the size, importance and grandeur of trees. Glenview has been recognized as a Tree City by the National Arbor Day Society and it has a tree protection ordinance. A Voluntary Heritage Tree Program is another way Glenview can celebrate the beauty and value of our stately trees.
Glenview’s Heritage Tree Program includes a registry containing over 70 trees and the Village is still accepting nominations. A tree can be nominated based on its size, beauty, historic significance, or any other quality that makes the tree special. Size evaluations are based on the following formula: circumference (inches) + total height (feet) + ¼ avg. crown width (feet) = total score. Each tree is first ranked in relation to other trees of the same species and then ranked overall. The top three trees based on this formula are:
•51-Foot Box Elder: diameter at breast height 64 inches; owned by Tom Rueckert, 410 Huber Lane•83-Foot American Elm: diameter at breast height 53.5 inches; owned by Dave and Kate May, 715 Wagner Road •68-Foot American Elm: diameter at breast height: 57 inches; Ron Mori Family, 400 Wilmette Road
