We're sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience at The Morton Arboretum. It is true that our attendance has grown over the years, but we are proud to welcome visitors so they may explore our vast 1,700 acres, which include trees from more than 40 countries. We believe Joy Morton would be heartened to see people of all ages connecting with trees and nature. Those at The Morton Arboretum are conducting important research in the areas of tree science and conservation—critical work that is supported by our members and others who visit our grounds. Our scientists are helping to save trees, not only in the Chicago area, but around the globe by way of seed-collecting expeditions and key collaborations with arboreta and gardens throughout the world.
