GLEN ELLYN – The Environmental Commission is partnering with the Morton Arboretum and tagging trees with cards that promote their positive qualities, the village of Glen Ellyn announced in a news release.

The theme of the endeavor is "Every Tree Matters." Six different tree tags will be hung, sharing the following messages:

• Trees clean the air we breathe.

• Trees keep us cooler.

• Trees increase our homes' value.

• Trees make our streets quieter.

• Trees help us relax.

• Trees make our cities safer.

Each tag provides details on how trees enhance the environment.
