Help Sustain Evanston’s Trees

The trees of Evanston are one of the city’s most valuable resources. However, through the course of time, trees decay in health or are removed to make room for new development. Though efforts are made to plant new trees every year, it may not be enough to sustain our tree population and diversity in the long-term.

To change this, the City has created a funding campaign allowing residents to donate to the Evanston Tree Fund each time a tree is cut down. All of the Tree Fund’s proceeds will be used to replace fallen trees and diversify Evanston’s tree population. The way it works is residents set a donation rate and a donation cap. Each time a tree is cut down in Evanston, a donation is made to the Evanston Tree Fund until the donation cap is met.

Remember: more trees mean cleaner air, reduced storm water runoff, higher property values, and safer neighborhoods. We can all do this together to help sustain Evanston’s trees.

Helping is simple!

Residents set a donation rate amount and a donation cap (you’re in charge of the total you wish to donate). Then, each time a tree is cut down, a donation is made until the donation cap is met. Location of trees cut and correlating donations earned will be listed below.
