Nov 9 – Urban Forests and the Glenview Management Plan

Did you know the Village of Glenview maintains over 30,000 trees? What do these trees do for us and what do they need from us? Come learn about our diverse “urban forest” and the importance of residents and businesses in helping to keep a healthy, beneficial tree canopy into the future. Our new urban forest management plan is nearing completion and needs your feedback. Funding was provided by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) Urban and Community Forestry Core Grant Program, and administered by The Morton Arboretum and the Chicago Region Trees Initiative (CRTI).
