Overview:

The purpose of the ACS is to promote the use of conifers in the garden and landscape and to educate the public about their care and preservation. Our mission is:

  • to promote the development, propagation and conservation of conifers
  • to encourage the appreciation and use of conifers in the landscape
  • to educate the public and professionals about conifers
  • to spread the joy, knowledge and diversity of conifers across the world!

 The American Conifer Society annually awards a $4,000 grant to a public garden, arboretum or horticultural institution that has demonstrated its support of the development, conservation and propagation of conifers with an emphasis on dwarf or unusual varieties. The award was established in 1986 to honor the memory of plantsman Jean Iseli of Boring, Oregon, who was an ACS Founder and conifer propagator.
