As the champion of trees, The Morton Arboretum worked throughout the Chicago region and around the world in 2016 to study trees, promote their conservation, preserve them in its own collections, and encourage understanding and appreciation of trees and nature.


The Arboretum helped form the Oaks of the Americas Conservation Network to unite botanists, ecologists, natural areas managers, and policymakers to conserve oaks in Mexico and Central America.

166 Arboreta Accredited by ArbNet


Exploring the world for plants


To collect rare and endangered oaks, magnolias, and other plants to improve collections for conservation, Arboretum staff traveled to the Republic of Georgia and the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Texas.

10 Research Fellows


Training stewards of natural areas

New courses on restoration were made available both online and onsite, providing Arboretum expertise to natural areas stewards throughout the Chicago region.

44,869 Arboretum Members


New system for collections data

As the first U.S. arboretum to use the Living Collections module in the Botanical Research And Herbarium Management System (BRAHMS), the Arboretum shared plant collections data with researchers and curators worldwide.

155,000 Visitors to Illumination


Bringing experts together

As a major center of tree expertise, the Arboretum hosted conferences to share knowledge and foster collaboration on urban tree care, plant breeding, invasive plants, and conservation of Mexican oaks.

$44.5 Million Raised by Growing Brilliantly


Inspiring the next generation

Arboretum scientists interacted with grade school and high school students at the Arboretum and at the schools to encourage interest in careers in tree science and horticulture.

71 Publications by Arboretum Researchers


1 million visitors


Arboretum staff planted 17 trees to improve the learning environment at Educare Chicago, a preschool that serves children from low-income families.

528 New Kinds of Plants


Identifying Conservation Priorities

As part of the Global Trees Campaign to conserve trees around the world, Arboretum experts assessed all 91 U.S. native oak species and found that about a quarter of them are endangered or vulnerable.

147 Communities served


Healthier river, new habitat

Restoration along 1.5 miles of the DuPage River on Arboretum property stabilized stream banks from erosion and created new habitat for native plants as well as fish, birds, and other wildlife.

66,145 Volunteer Hours


Nature play opportunities

Two nature play areas opened near Thornhill Education Center and Big Rock Visitor Station to provide children with opportunities for unstructured play in natural surroundings.

1.34 Million Plant Website Visits


Learning to improve restoration

A newly planted prairie experiment will test hypotheses about how restoration affects biodiversity, soils, and roots.

67 Percent Increase in Greenhouse Space


The highest recognition

President and CEO Gerard T. Donnelly, PhD, received the J. Sterling Morton Award of the Arbor Day Foundation for commitment to tree planting, reinforcing the Arboretum’s connection to the Morton legacy of planting trees.
