City needs to get replacement trees planted

Success - Article sent! close

Des Plaines needs to be more aggressive in replacing our lost tree canopy. We can't wait for residents to request or pay for trees -- because many won't make the effort. This is a neighborhood issue, not an issue for individual residents.

Besides the lost of beautiful, tree-lined streets, lots of large trees also absorb huge amounts of water, which helps prevent neighborhood flooding.
