Continue the Troll Hunt with Finds from The Arboretum Store

Displays of gardening and nature-themed bowls and other merchandise at the Arboretum Store.
July 3, 2018

Trolls are emerging from the woods of The Morton Arboretum. In celebration of these giant, unusual creatures, The Arboretum Store has stocked up on some unique troll-themed items, including apparel and books. Shoppers can also pick up repurposed wooden items for the home, a nod to the reclaimed wood that artist Thomas Dambo used to create the larger-than-life trolls guarding the Arboretum’s forest.
