Dedicate a tree in honor or memory of someone special. Choose from a list of existing 2012 trees that the Arboretum has available for dedication. Tribute trees vary in species and location on our grounds. All Tribute Trees are marked with engraved tree tags, stating that the tree stands in honor or memory of a special friend or family member. Tribute Gift donors of $1,500 or more receive a complimentary one-year Morton Family membership.
- Tree located in Central Landscape: $2,500
- Tree located in Living Collections: $1,500
The intent of The Morton Arboretum is to maintain Tribute Trees for their full life span. However, tree longevity varies with the species and environmental conditions. The Morton Arboretum will replace failed trees up to ten years after a dedication.
