Taltree Arboretum & Gardens is dedicated to providing educational opportunities in arboriculture, ecology, horticulture, natural history and conservation of natural resources. Located on more than 300 acres on the Valparaiso moraine, the preserve features Indiana’s largest oak collection with more than 80 species of temperate and sub-tropical oaks from around the world. Taltree has restored more than 35 acres of tall-grass prairie on former agricultural land; in combination with wetland restoration and reforestation, the landscape is being returned to its pre-settlement conditions. Among its many fine gardens is the Welcome Garden, which exhibits a wide array of uncommon plants including Asian maples, Stewartia, and a grove of Katsura.
