Some of the most important resources at the Kentucky Horse Park are our trees. The Park is home to over 1,000 trees – representing 75 different species – with quite some dating back to the late 1700’s. They beautify our park grounds, providing shade and shelter to our guests – both human and equine. They are historic, iconic – and irreplaceable.
The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation is embarking on an ambitious fund-raising campaign to protect the trees of the Kentucky Horse Park, both now and in the future. We are establishing the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation Tree Fund to help us create a long-term plan with professional arborists, with the two-fold mission of attending to the well-being of those trees already living on the Park and establishing a new on-site tree nursery to ensure that replacement trees are always growing and available for future generations to admire and enjoy.
