Friends of the Parks’ Tree Planting Initiative Friends of the Parks:
What is Friends of the Parks’ Tree Planting Initiative?
It’s a partnership with the City of Chicago’s Chicago Tree Initiative (CTI). CTI was established in 2009 by the city to plant thousands of trees over the next several years with the goal to increase the total tree canopy in Chicago from 13% to 20%.
The aim of the Chicago Tree Initiative is to plant thousands of trees throughout the city: on streets, in parks, and in private yards. Accomplishing this goal will require the collaboration of many partners.
