During this stressful time, trees and greenspace provide much needed benefits to improve the quality of our daily lives. The Village of Riverside devotes funding and staffing to maximize these benefits for residents by tree pruning, managing disease or insect outbreaks, and planting new trees to diversify our urban forest.  The Village is committed to keeping Riverside green and growing for future generations to enjoy.
