People need trees, and trees need people. Urbanization is increasing, biodiversity is being lost at an alarming rate, and trees are threatened as the climate changes.
Urgent action is needed to sustain trees and their vital benefits to people, communities, and the environment. As The Champion of Trees, The Morton Arboretum is taking scientifically-informed action, so a diversity of people can ultimately benefit from the power of trees.
Building on nearly a century of progress, the Strategic Plan 2020 positions the Arboretum for continued impact and mission achievement in its next hundred years.
