Tree Week


Tree Week // Autumn Foliage

October 26-November 2

Celebrate our tree collection, the trees in your life, and the season when trees’ fall colors take center stage.

In a display that ranges from bright golden yellow to muted copper to deep scarlet, our trees and their fantastic fall foliage take center stage every October. In celebration of our colorful canopy, Tree Week offers visitors the opportunity to learn more about the Garden’s impressive tree collection.
