Learn to identify, plant, care for and prune trees in hands on classes with regional professionals. Then put those skills into action through volunteer work in your community. Anywhere from 6,000 to 10,000 trees can die in Chicago in a single year--from storm damage, drought, insect pests and other causes. TreeKeepers have worked throughout the city to keep its trees healthy, administering proper care and promptly recognizing and reporting harmful pests. Take action to protect trees in your community by becoming an Openlands TreeKeeper® at The Morton Arboretum. LEARN MORE ABOUT TREEKEEPERS
