Arbor Day Seedling

As a part of our mission to promote horticulture and the cultivation of exceptional woody plants in our region, the Arnold Arboretum distributes plants to other botanical institutions and to members of the Arboretum community. We are continuing this legacy through the Arbor Day Seedling Program, which makes a seedling of a tree, shrub, or vine available in early spring to members of The Friends of the Arnold Arboretum as a benefit at the Sustaining ($100) level and above.

We invite members to celebrate with us by planting a tree with connections to the Arboretum in their own landscapes. Join the Friends of the Arnold Arboretum at the Sustaining level ($100) or above today to take part next spring! Or, to upgrade your existing membership to qualify, please call 617.384.5766 or email Wendy Krauss, Membership Manager.

Participating members in the 2020 Arbor Day Seedling distribution will receive email updates on our revised distribution plan due to the pandemic. For more information, email the membership office.
