Arbor Day 2022

Did you know the City of Lake Forest has been recognized as Tree City USA 41 consecutive years?

In an effort to promoting the commitment to preserving trees and the continuous greening of Lake Forest, the City's Forestry section and Lake Forest Open Lands are providing residents with free Douglas Fir and Serbian Spruce tree seedlings beginning Wednesday, April 20
