Trees need champions today. Their survival depends on people—people taking action to protect and preserve them. Trees filter our air and water, reduce energy use, furnish wildlife habitats, and create beauty, and they need human help to continue.
That's why The Morton Arboretum is committed to scientifically informed action, both locally and globally. It's why we champion trees through scientific study, conservation, education, and outreach. It's why we protect and plant trees in a 1,700-acre outdoor living museum, in Chicago-area communities, and around the world.
