Plant Trees for Communities Campaign

The Chicago Region Trees Initiative is seeking financial support to plant at least one tree.

The Plant Trees for Communities initiative is the first step toward CRTI’s goal to rebuild the Chicago region’s urban forest, which has lost millions of trees due to invasive pests, disease, and drought over the past ten years. With the help of partners like you, we will build a stronger, healthier, and more equitable future for the Chicago region. Any amount is appreciated, and goes directly toward the purchase and planting of trees. Just $300 buys and plants one tree.

All donations will be processed through The Morton Arboretum's secure donation website. All funds will go directly to CRTI. The Morton Arboretum is the founding partner of CRTI. 
Each tree planted through this initiative will be tagged and mapped for tracking on the CRTI website and a new app that will be launched in 2021. Communities will be provided with tree care information and support to ensure that their trees thrive to maturity.

Other opportunities to help the Chicago Region Trees Initiative make a bigger impact. 

Our tree plantings, programs, workshops, trainings, and resources reach communities across the Chicago Region. Help us reach our goal of a healthier, more diverse, more equitable forest by 2050!
