TreePlanters Project Application
Applications for Spring 2017 are closed.

For Fall 2017 Plantings (September-November), please submit this form by June 15, 2017.

This grant is for Chicago residents who would like to facilitate a community tree planting day with their neighbors. By engaging neighbors, local businesses and organizations, the applicant will identify locations for 10 to 40 trees to be planted, as well as volunteers interested in planting them. Openlands will provide assistance throughout this process.

Planting locations must be in the city of Chicago, walking distance from each other and on public land. Public land is considered to be the parkways between the curb and the sidewalk in front of residential houses, CPS school property, and some vacant lots. We will no longer accept proposals that are solely for planting in Chicago Parks.

Those receiving the grant will:

Assist in gathering neighbors and other volunteers for the planting day.
Ensure a representative from each residence is present on planting day if planting on parkways in front of homes.
Water the new trees for three years after planting go to enure tree survival and establishment.

Openlands will:

Facilitate a site visit prior to planting.
Facilitate the community tree planting day.
Assist with annual community maintenance events for the following two years.
Provide all tools, trees, and mulch.

Not all applications will be able to receive a grant.
