The human connection to trees spans the globe and countless generations. Trees have captured the human imagination since the beginning of time. This exhibit highlights the importance of trees to humans and wildlife, the diversity of the trees of Illinois, and shares personal perspectives of a family’s connection to trees.

Be sure to also check out a special outdoor exhibit nearby, Vanishing Acts: Trees Under Threat. Located on the Timberdoodle Trail, this outdoor exhibit invites viewers to embark on a global journey exploring 15 compelling tree stories from around the world. Each story reflects the exhibit’s primary theme – that we must protect and save endangered trees so that future generations may experience their numerous benefits. Vanishing Acts was originally curated by the Morton Arboretum in partnership with the Global Trees Campaign.
