MTF receives County Environmental Excellence Award

Trees help define our sense of place and contribute to our community’s economy, environment, and way of life. A healthy tree population projects a positive community image and improves the quality of life.

Since its founding in 1970 as a semi-autonomous working committee of the McLean Citizens Association, the McLean Trees Foundation (MTF) has helped to maintain, restore, and enhance McLean’s urban forest on public and private property.

MTF has planted thousands of trees and shrubs in parks, school grounds, government sites, commercial corridors, residential areas, traffic islands, and along sidewalk rights-of-way.
