What is global tree loss?  How can I help?  These questions and much more will be explored in the exhibit, Vanishing Acts: Trees Under Threat.  Created by the Morton Arboretum in partnership with the Global Trees Campaign, Vanishing Acts is an interpretive display that fosters awareness about trees that are threatened and endangered.  Visit the May Arboretum and explore the causes and impacts of global tree loss and what you can do to help.
