CHICAGO -- Chicago is making a move to get a bit greener by planting trees.

Chicago has long had a history of planting trees and maintaining urban forests. Mayor Rahm Emanuel says in a news release that the 3,800 trees to be planted is an example of how trees have in the past and continue to be an integral part of the effort to keep the city as green as possible.

Officials say the U.S. Department of Agriculture has determined Chicago has an estimated 3.5 million trees on public and private property. That means more than 17 percent of the city's acreage has a tree planted on it.
