Morton Arboretum Trails Professional Review and Guide
"Hidden in the western suburbs, these lush, forested hills serve as an outdoor museum for the public and a cutting-edge research facility for arborists and horticulturalists. Almost one hundred years ago, one of Chicago’s most well-known titans of industry— Joy Morton—set aside 178 acres of land on his handsome estate for the growth and preservation of his beloved trees. The grounds have since expanded to cover over 1,700 acres with more than 4,000 kinds of trees and shrubs from forty different countries. During a leisurely walk through its wood-chipped trail system, you’re strolling through forests from all over the world."
