Abstract:The Forest Preserve District of Cook County, Illinois, includes 65,000 acres, 11 percent of a county whose population of 5.5 million includes that of Chicago. The district's growth and development reflect strong public support for urban forest preservation, environmental education, and outdoor recreation.
