The suburban Chicago landscape is 75 trees richer, thanks to an initiative by Christopher B. Burke Engineering, Ltd. in honor of The Conservation Foundation’s 50th Anniversary and The Morton Arboretum’s 100th Anniversary. These 75 trees were planted in 45 municipalities across suburban Chicago in the fall of 2022.

“I have always admired the work of The Conservation Foundation and how they work quietly behind the scenes to get things done,” Chris said when he joined our Board of Trustees. “I am very excited about helping to increase The Conservation Foundation’s capacity to preserve more land and clean up our rivers.” And two decades later, he has brought a perspective of land use and stormwater management to our decision making, helped us strengthen relationships within the municipal and development communities, and brought his expertise to numerous water-related restoration projects of The Conservation Foundation.
