As part of the Chicago Region Carbon Program, the Village of Mount Prospect planted 1,800 trees between June 2019 and June 2022 on public rights-of-way throughout the Village. This project will have a positive impact on the community and increase awareness of the sustainability and human health benefits of tree plantings.

Approximately 20 species of trees were selected for planting to diversify the urban tree canopy and beautify village streets. The trees planted will also benefit residents’ health by improving air quality and providing thermal refuge. Other benefits include stormwater management and erosion control, which help mitigate the impacts of climate change.

This project is part of the Chicago Region Carbon Program (CRCP) and complements other tree planting and preservation projects in the seven-metro counties included in the Chicago Region Trees Initiative. Projects in the 2022 CRCP cohort include:
