Nurture a healthy and successful urban forest

Glen Ellyn, IL
Nurture a healthy and successful urban forest

Glen Ellyn should strive to grow and maintain a sustainable "urban forest", primarily by way of a healthy tree canopy along downtown streets, that contributes to the livability of the downtown. The trees that comprise that canopy would be recognized as a part of our green infrastructure that provides economic and environmental benefits. Any tree canopy loss will be slowed and efforts made to reverse this trend through best practices in tree planting, preservation, and maintenance while fostering a sense of stewardship among residents and business owners.

The benfits of investing in substantial and sustainable green spaces in expected and unexpected locations are limitless.

I totally support this, trees are a part of what makes glen ellyn so beautiful and attractive to people, both to live and to visit. We should treat them as one of our greatest assets.

Need more specific information. What does this mean? What are the trade-offs?

Wonderful. Let’s do it. Trees provide a lot of practical benefits and they are beautiful and inspiring. The more trees that are downtown, the more beautiful it will be and the more people will want to invest and shop there.
