Taltree Arboretum & Gardens

Taltree Arboretum & Gardens is a non-profit organization with more than 330 acres of formal gardens, woodlands, wetlands, oak preserves, and prairies, including more than 6 miles of hiking trails. We are home to the third most diverse collection of oak trees in the nation. Taltree is dog-friendly, open year-round and offers more than 50 events throughout the year for patrons of all ages.

Taltree Arboretum & Gardens


Our mission is to support and inspire environmental stewardship, restoration, education, conservation, and sustainability. We are not a park, a nature preserve or a forest preserve, all of which are public entities managed by governmental bodies. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, meaning all proceeds — including those from weddings — go to support our environmental mission.
