Tree Week


Tree Week // Autumn Foliage

October 29-November 4

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, the Garden is kicking off Tree Week—offering visitors the opportunity to learn more about its impressive tree collection.

Tree Talk
