The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) aims to help restore Cook County’s depleted tree canopy. Their Restore the Canopy, Plant a Tree program empowers the residents of Cook County with an opportunity to restore our region’s tree canopy and reduce the chances of future flooding. This program provides free 18″ oak saplings to community residents, organizations, municipalities and libraries to distribute and plant throughout the county.

The free saplings are available in individual pots or in bulk bags of 100 bare root saplings. Planting and care instructions, along with additional information regarding the benefits of trees, will be provided with each delivery. With advance notice, the saplings can be picked up at MWRD facilities or delivered.
