Tree Planting in Dolton 10/18

Lawndale Planting - 2.jpeg

Dolton is a working-class community that is committed to both its residents and its tree canopy. Located 22 miles south of Chicago's Loop along the Little Calumet River, this majority BIPOC community contains areas with as little as 22% canopy cover, leading to heat islands, elevated flooding risks and poor air quality.

The tree canopy in Dolton has also suffered heavy losses due to the invasive Emerald Ash Borer. With your help (and support from the US Forest Service), we'll be planting 40 trees of diverse species to replace dead and dying ash trees along residential parkways, helping to create habitat for wildlife and shady, attractive neighborhoods for generations to come.

No experience is necessary! Volunteers will help us dig holes, plant trees, mulch, and water.
