Aren’t tree houses supposed to be in trees?
Technically, yes, tree houses are supposed to be in trees. However, The Morton Arboretum’s mission is to maintain the health of our trees and ensure their vitality. To avoid stressing or otherwise damaging our trees, the tree houses in the exhibition were designed to stay grounded. As devout arborists, we can assure you that no trees were harmed in the making of our tree houses.
