August 14-16, 2015 at the Chicago Botanic Garden
Guest Judge: Ivan Watters
Our August show has the longest history, going into its 38th in 2015. It is one of the largest regional shows in the nation. Centered on the Chicago Botanic Garden’s Permanent Collection, featuring over 50 world-class trees, it’s a showplace of trees from across the Midwest and beyond. Enthusiasts from across the country bring their trees to be judged in the main hall at the Garden’s Regenstein Center – with this year’s guest master David Easterbrook.
Visitors can take advantage of hotel discounts arranged by the Chicago Botanic Garden. When making reservations tell the hotel you are in town to attend an event at the Garden. Suggested hotel accommodations can be found at the Chicago Botanic Garden’s website.
