Adopt a Tree

We offer a special way for you to contribute this year, and that is to symbolically adopt one or more of our trees for the year. Since Tyler does not receive local or state support, we rely on the generosity of people like you in the community to help with our everyday operational needs. As someone who already understands the value of Tyler Arboretum, your contribution sends a strong message to others that might also consider support.

Trees are not merely pleasant sources of shade but a potentially major answer to some of our most pressing environmental problems. Adopt a tree today and preserve Tyler Arboretum for future generations.
