The Chicago Region Trees Initiative (CRTI) is a collaborative partnership for coordinated action on key issues facing trees. It is the largest such initiative in the country, with leading organizations and agencies from across the seven-county metropolitan region working together. CRTI is leveraging funding, knowledge, skills, and expertise to build a healthier, more diverse regional forest.

Melissa will provide an overview of what is being done throughout the region, and how people and communities can help.   They look at the value of all trees whether they are in a park, streetscape, or natural area.
