Openlands Forestry team has planted more than 4,500 trees across the Chicago region since 2013. With the help of our TreeKeepers volunteers, we are the active stewards of Chicago’s urban forest. You can support this work by making a donation to the Openlands Tree Fund.
TreeKeepers work throughout the region to keep trees healthy, administering proper care and promptly recognizing and reporting harmful pests.
Apply for the Openlands TreePlanters Grant to plant trees in your neighborhood with your community.
Our autumn Native Tree & Shrub Sale is now open!
Openlands forestry team is always in need of volunteers to assist with community greening.
