Explore European Tree Collections

Take a quick trip to surround yourself with European trees! Hike the trails and explore the Arboretum's collections of trees and plants native to central and northern Europe, some of the oldest collections on the Arboretum’s grounds.

The European collections at The Morton Arboretum feature a group of plants native to Central Europe (Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Hungary, and Poland) and Northern Europe (Norway, Sweden, and Finland). These two collections represent one of the oldest collections on the Arboretum grounds, started in 1925 by Henry Teuscher, the Arboretum's first botanist.

Eighty to ninety percent of Europe was once covered in forests. Much of Europe is densely populated, and its flora has been greatly affected by Europe's agricultural history. The continent offers a palette of plants that can thrive in Northern Illinois.
