With support from the United States Forest Service and the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust, Botanic Gardens Conservation International US (BGCIUS) and The Morton Arboretum are conducting a conservation gap analysis for native U.S. oaks (genus Quercus). This analysis incorporates ex-situ collections data, in-situ health and distribution of wild populations, as well as oak conservation programs and stakeholders.

Work with oaks or know someone who does? We want to know about it!

We have created a 10-minute questionnaire to gather information on management and conservation of U.S. native oaks. The information you submit will serve as valuable guidance as we assess and prioritize future oak collection and conservation work. Our findings will be widely distributed in a final report. Questionnaire Deadline: June 23 Deadline extended to June 30.
