A New South Farm

Care for the Arboretum You Love

South Farm is the heart of Arboretum operations. The arborists, horticulturists, and gardeners who work out of South Farm tend the Arboretum gardens and landscapes that welcome visitors 365 days each year. 

The former buildings of South Farm dated back to the 1930s. Since then, The Morton Arboretum has more than quadrupled in size, with a sweeping 1,700-acre footprint and tree and plant collections of worldwide significance. 

Help build the Arboretum of the future! Your gift provides care for one of the most treasured places to experience and learn about trees and nature in the Chicago region.

A new South Farm—with its Curatorial and Operations Center, Vehicle Storage Building, and plant production facilities—will keep the Arboretum beautiful and inviting for years to come.
