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. 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.
