Caring for Trees in the Village


The Village of Glencoe is a residential lakefront community in New Trier Township, Cook County, Illinois. Ten thousand years ago, glacial action carved the bluff-edged landscape and large ravines that drain eastern Glencoe to Lake Michigan.The eastern two thirds of the Village was predominately covered by oak trees, whereas the western portion was a mix of prairie and wetlands.Taking a look around Glencoe you can still see the vestige of original landscape and topography. The urban forest we preserve today in our community makes it a better place to live in tomorrow.
