Chicago’s urban forest is vital to the health of our region.
As our climate changes, the urban forest plays a crucial role in mitigating the effects by:
- sequestering and storing carbon by absorbing CO2
- reducing surface temperatures by providing shade
- capturing rain water and reducing flooding
You can help care for the urban forest by making a donation to the Openlands Tree Fund.
