The City recognizes that the urban forest is crucial to environmental and community well-being. Increasing and sustaining Evanston’s tree population improves air quality, stormwater absorption, livability, and reduces adverse urban impacts on humans and key species. Currently, trees face threats such as invasive pests, disease, and intensifying weather events due to climate change. To combat this, the city will adhere to Climate Action and Resilience Plan’s goal of planting 2,000 new trees by 2050 along with the additional actions listed in the plan. Below is a list of threats trees face and resources regarding their preservation.
