The new Gateway to Tree Science exhibit will provide an up-close look at The Morton Arboretum’s tree-focused research, with insightful information and ongoing, real-time experiments rooted in nearly a century of tree expertise. Along a one-mile path, visitors will learn about the many facets of trees: how they function and thrive, the unique challenges they face in cities and suburbs, the plight of endangered trees, and a look at the research studies taking place at the Arboretum that are helping ensure a greener, healthier, and more beautiful world.

The Gateway to Tree Science will be located at parking lot 8 (P8) on the east side of the Arboretum.  It is supported by the Growing Brilliantly Campaign.
