  • Nurturing our new seedlings
  • Maintaining and improving our plant and tree collections
  • Making you a partner in world conservation and research
  • Grooming Hoyt’s 12 miles of trails that are free for public recreation
  • Maintaining our publically-accessible plant database

You can donate in five ways:

  • Online - through our secure donation box to the right by making a one-time gift in any amount
  • Online monthly - set up a series of monthly payments online through a secure PayPal connection by using a major credit card or your PayPal account via the secure box on the right

Be a Giant - Make HAF Part of Your Legacy

Dawn_Redwood_for_inventory_page.jpgRedwoods (Sequoiadendron giganteum) are the world’s tallest trees and can live for hundreds - even thousands - of years. Their role is critical in building a protective canopy that nurtures the surrounding ecosystem and help it to thrive. Redwood trees are among the world’s treasures.

Like redwoods, there are many people who support and nurture Hoyt Arboretum by giving of their time, talent and treasure. These include our Sequoia Collection Legacy Members who have named Hoyt Arboretum Friends as a beneficiary in their planned giving.  If you have included HAF in your estate plans, we would like to hear from you so you can be recognized as a Sequoia Collection Legacy Member.

Visit the Redwood Collection here at the Arboretum and be inspired to be one of the giants whose gift can support HAF for many years to come. If you would like to include Hoyt Arboretum Friends in your estate plans, or have already done so and would like to be recognized as a Sequoia Collection Legacy Member, please contact Peggie Schwarz at 503.823.1648 or

Thank you for your support!

A donation of $35 or more always entitles you to a membership with Hoyt Arboretum Friends!

Contributions to Hoyt Arboretum Friends are tax deductible. IRS ID#93-0919495 

Thank You to our Donors!
