Tree Equity in Illinois
An inequitable distribution of trees places people of color at greater risk from rising temperatures and prolonged heat waves Join the Tree Equity subgroup of the Natural Climate Solutions Working Group of the Downstate Caucus! Using American Forest’s Tree Equity Score, we are partnering with representatives of the cities of Carbondale and East St. Louis to bring tree equity to their communities.
Expanding tree equity can increase carbon capture and store; protect all people from the health impacts associated with climate change; lower utility bills; improve property values; and reduce violent crime.
