Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum


  • Tall tree-like structures spreads intricate designs of light across the landscape
  • Lighted orbs adorn the hillside
  • Chandeliers sparkle and shine amid the branches of Douglas fir trees.
  • Hemlocks are transformed into a screen of abstract shapes

See trees in a different light at Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum. You'll be surrounded by color as you walk a one-mile paved path amid interactive lighting effects that highlight the beauty of trees in winter. Enjoy seasonal music, marvel at ever-changing, interactive lighting designs, and warm up by a crackling fire with a cozy drink or roast marshmallows for s’mores.

Illumination will take place November 22, 2019 through January 5, 2020.
