Each year the Morris Arboretum partners with a variety of organizations to convene conferences for professionals in plant related fields.  Our conferences are of interest to professional arborists, landscape architects, professional horticulturists, and avid home gardeners.  Each conference carries continuing education units (CEU’s) for arborists and landscape architects.  Our annual conferences include:

  • The Ecological Landscape Design Symposium held in January in partnership with New Directions in the American Landscape (NDAL) and Connecticut College.
  • The Woody Plant Conference held in July in partnership with Scott Arboretum, Longwood Gardens, Chanticleer, PHS, and Tyler Arboretum.
  • The Tree Canopy Conference held in October in partnership with Haverford College.
