Through the partnership of American Forests and local tree planting groups 2,000 native conifer trees will be planted along Illinois Rt. 53 in Arlington Heights and also on and along R.O.W. of I 290 in Addison, Il. These trees will help to offset local deforestation and farmland loss from ongoing urban development. The planted forest will benefit communities adjacent to the urban traffic along the expressway year round. These trees will help absorb noise and air pollution as well as providing communities with an improved aesthetically attractive atmosphere in which to live.
