The Forest In Bloom Awards are presented annually by the City of Oak Forest to residents, businesses and organizations who take the extra steps necessary to beautify their homes and properties through exceptional landscaping. If you notice a home or business where pride of ownership really shines through, be sure to complete and submit the award nomination form. Entries are due July 6.
All residents or business owners are eligible to nominate themselves or another home, business or organization. An address must be included on the nomination form.
A nominee must earn 25 points to receive a Forest In Bloom Award. When awarding points, judges consider the visual appeal of the front yard landscaping; the maintenance of lawn, bushes, shrubs, and flower beds; and the use of accessories (gazing balls, fountains, statues, etc.). Back yards will not be considered as part of the award selection. A nomination form must be submitted on behalf of a home or property in order to be considered for an award.
