Perennial Reports

Arboretum employees watering and pruning trees and shrubs

It is the nature of annual reports to look back...but here at The Morton Arboretum it is our nature as planters of trees to focus on the  future, too.

Each year, our Perennial Report acknowledges our generous donors, volunteers, employees, and other community members for planting the seeds of our future through their actions in a single year. As a not-for-profit organization, we are indebted to those who support our vision and help us achieve success.

These reports are one way we can summarize and share the results of your support. We hope you see in them our deepest gratitude and our highest ambitions. We owe both to you.
