The Chicago Region Trees Initiative (CRTI) is a partnership of more than 200 organizations across the seven county Chicago metro region. The CRTI believes that trees are critical to our quality of life, and its mission is to ensure that trees are more healthy,  abundant, diverse, and equitably distributed to provide needed benefits to all people and communities in the Chicago region.
