Trees play an important role in our lives throughout the seasons, offering beauty, shade, and many heartwarming memories. If you have a special connection to a tree, or a tree you remember from childhood that has significant meaning to you, add your story to Tree-mendous Tree Stories, a website highlighting Chicago-area residents' unique connection to trees. Those interested can submit their tree stories for consideration. Read stories from other tree champions or submit your own at tree-stories.org!

You can read personal stories from the Arboretum team to learn why oaks are vital for local communities and ecosystems across the world, then share a story of your own. Read OAKtober stories here.
