Last year the Foundation launched its TREES PLEASE initiative with hopes of reversing the diminishing tree population prevalent in our area. Thanks to generous donors, 11 new trees were planted in various parks this fall! We hope to plant even more trees next year and continue the benefits trees provide; beauty, clean air, flood protection, improved property values, and wildlife habitats. Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated and will help to continue our tree replacement and beautification program.
For a donation of $500 or more, you will have the opportunity to choose a planting location from the Park District’s recommendations as well as receive special recognition at the Burr Ridge Community Center at Harvester Park.
