- In a forest, a tree can live for more than 100 years. But urban and suburban trees, dealing with limited space and environmental stresses, may survive for only 15 years unless they receive special attention. In Chicago, that attention comes from the Openlands TreeKeepers™, a corps of volunteers who care for public trees, keeping them healthy and administering proper care. Now, the group is expanding its outreach to the suburbs, and has partnered with The Morton Arboretum to offer an eight-week TreeKeeper training course this fall.
