Chicago region trees initiative
Our Trees. Our Community. Our Future.
Why We Participate
We are part of the Chicago Region Trees Initiative (CRTI), the largest initiative in the country building a healthier regional forest. The Plant Trees Digital Campaign asks homeowners, property owners, and municipalities to plant at least one tree during the 2021 planting seasons (spring and fall). Together, we are helping to build a greener, healthier, and more sustainable Chicago region.
About the Campaign
Trees clean the air and water, help manage stormwater, improve property values, cool and save energy, create habitat for wildlife, and provide significant social and health benefits. In short, trees improve quality of life.
But the Chicago region’s urban forest needs your help. The region has lost over 13 million trees in recent years due to pests, storms, invasive species, drought, and a lack of funding for proper tree care. These issues are having significant impacts on the health and survival of the regional forest.
How You Can Help
You can plant trees or learn how to properly care for existing trees so that they grow to maturity and provide benefits to you and your community for years to come. #PlantTrees
