Plant a Tree
Planting trees is an investment in our future. In 2011 Morton Arboretum staff planted 799 trees and woody and perennial plants throughout our 1,700 acres to replace those that were diseased, dying, or harmed by natural occurences. Some of those new trees were cultivars bred here at the Arboretum to boost our population of healthy endangered trees.
Each day, thousands of species of trees and woody plants - the world over - provide us with food, shelter, oxygen, shade, beauty, and other sustainable resources. That is why The Morton Arboretum works to save and plant trees through vital science, conservation, and education programs.
Donors to the Plant-a-Tree Program, who give $100 or more, will receive a personalized certificate acknowledging the gift, an Arboretum "plant trees" car decal, and a listing on the Plant-a-Tree Honor Roll that will be posted at this page on the website. Check back in a few weeks to see the 2011 listing.
