Grant Park is still home to the largest stand of American elm trees anywhere in the country. However, over the years, the spectacular displays of elms, flowering crab apples, lilacs, and other shade trees declined. So remedy this, a park-wide restoration project is underway... together with the Chicago Park District. The Conservancy has developed a tree replacement plan for every missing tree in Grant Park.
