Hoyt Arboretum Friends Arborist Partner Program

Program Overview

The Arborist Partner Program supports Hoyt Arboretum and ensures that Hoyt Arboretum Friends (HAF) continues to provide an environment of learning, research and conservation to the 400,000 visitors it hosts annually.  This support helps HAF educate the public about our collections and programs and supports the projects that keep the arboretum healthy and active in protecting the world’s plants and trees.  The program offers our business partners an opportunity to show the community how they support Hoyt Arboretum both financially and with their volunteerism.

Thank you volunteers!

What is Arborists in the Arboretum Day?

Once a year our arborists friends from the Portland metro area gather up their tools and swing up to Hoyt for our annual Arborists in the Arboretum Day. Each arborist spends their precious Saturday lending their experience and expertise in the careful care of our collections. We are thrilled to host this boisterous group of colleagues and are amazed at the skill and accuracy with which they do their work.

While this event is closed to only our arborist volunteers, feel free to stop by and watch them work - from a safe distance - in the collections. They will be visiting us again on Saturday, September 6, 2014 from 8am until 12pm.
