"Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing." - Abraham Lincoln
We want to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Yellowstone Arboretum, The Botanical Society of ZooMontana and ZooMontana itself. As you visit the grounds you will be witnessing the strong diversity of tree species found, both common and uncommon, here in south central Montana. Our unique climate lends to many obstacles for the growth of trees. Weather in Montana can be harsh and cruel at times so the trees you'll see have gained strength through our acute hot and cold, windy seasons, drought and tough Zone 4 conditions. We are also proud to be selected as a "Plant Select" location, one of three in the state, to research the before-market survival of new species.
Please feel free to visit our site anytime as it's open 24 / 7. We will always be updating with new content so stay tuned !
