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. MTF works closely with community and environmental groups on tree planting and preservation.
