For a greener world

Arboretum scientists and collaborators conduct research and build collaborative research resources to make an impactful contribution to create a greener, healthier, and more beautiful world.

These projects encompass applied and basic questions about tree care, plant diversity, and ecosystem restoration that address the key challenges facing trees and plants. We work right in our own backyard, in the 1,700 acres of living collections and natural areas, and across the globe, with foci in the Midwest USA, Mexico, and subtropical Asia. These projects incorporate and expand upon a large number of collaborators at a wide variety of institutions, from botanical gardens, industry, academia, and government regionally and worldwide.
