Trees are on the forefront of climate change mitigation, human health, and social justice. Their importance cannot be understated. However, it can be difficult to fund, plant and support more trees. DuPage County has worked to overcome many of these obstacles at their 202-acre government campus. What used to be a monoculture landscape is now a hotbed of diversity. From trees, to funding, to an Arboretum level status, the campus has made vast improvements with more in the pipeline to continue to increase the tree canopy. Join Andi Dierich, the DuPage County Environmental Coordinator, for this presentation that will have some tips and ideas for those planting a single tree to folks planting hundreds.
