The Morton Arboretum is currently pursuing several research and conservation initiatives that focus on the genus Quercus, or oaks. But what’s so important about oaks, anyway? This self-paced, online course will explain why oaks are an important genus to protect and study; what threats oaks (and other tree species) are currently facing; and what the Arboretum is doing to protect and study oaks.
