Building a Legacy of Stewardship

The Woodland Stewardship Program schools volunteers to interact with nature in a way that is both meaningful and sustainable.

Taking Stock of Your Landscape

Now, at the end of the growing season, is the best opportunity to assess your garden and plan ahead as you do your last garden chores.

Why These Trees?

Tree House Tales features great stories, and yes, lots of history.

Staying Grounded

Aren’t tree houses supposed to be in trees?

Meet the Trees and Their Houses

Every tree has a story. Learn about the history of the tree behind each of our tree houses.

The Gift of Stories From Trees

The story of the trees is calling you to the Arboretum this fall. At our Tree House Tales exhibition, you and your family can explore the Bur Oak Clubhouse, the Empress Tree Castle, and more. Each tree house is built near the tree it represents and provides clues about its identity and story.

Symptoms of Emerald Ash Borer

See if this is happening to the ash trees on your property.

EAB Advice to Homeowners

By the time symptoms are obvious, borers may have been at work on a tree for months or years and it may be too late to stop them. Treating while an ash tree still seems healthy may forestall an infestation.

Where have all the Ashes gone?

Where did the emerald ash borer come from? Listen to this podcast on which Andrea Dierich, Forest Pest Outreach and Survey Project Coordinator at The Morton Arboretum, explains about the origins and life cycle of this insect and how it destroys ash trees.

Get Help Making Ash Tree Choices

If you have an ash tree, it’s time to make a decision about whether to try to save it from emerald ash borer infestation with insecticide treatments. The Arboretum has a new brochure for homeowners and a new guide for communities on how to deal with this insect scourge attacking one of our most common trees.
