Bring more green to state

Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - PERSPECTIV­E -

A pro­gres­sive state like Illi­nois can be green by plant­ing trees every day of the year. Trees are the lungs of the uni­verse that cur­tail global warm­ing, ex­ces­sive heat and pol­lu­tion. Trees pro­vide ideal habi­tats for birds and a vast ar­ray of won­drous wildlife species. Plant­ing trees makes a city aes­thet­i­cally beau­ti­ful in ad­di­tion to en­hanc­ing prop­erty val­ues. Trees add seren­ity to neigh­bor­hoods and can even re­duce vi­o­lence. — Brien Comer­ford, Glen­view
