Kansas City is blessed with many magnificent native, historic and champion trees that have stood the test of time and the idiosyncrasies of our climate and environment. However, many of them are in their twilight years. With your support, Powell Gardens will launch a new Legacy Tree Program to propagate these proven performers before they are lost forever. 

The Legacy Tree Program will help Powell Gardens carry forward the legacy of some truly amazing specimens. Visitors can already enjoy the green legacy of our forefathers right here at Powell Gardens. From mighty Bur Oaks to delicious Pecans and beautiful Flowering Dogwoods, Powell Gardens is planting for future generations. We hope to expand our collection and continue educational programming aimed to advise on proper legacy tree selection, planting, care and maintenance.

It’s our generation’s turn to consider what type of green legacy we will leave. Please consider a donation to support the Legacy Tree Program at Powell Gardens. Your support will allow us to collect, propagate and grow many of these great plants, and soon make them available to you and the Greater Kansas City community.
