Enea Tree Museum, Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland

On 2010, the Tree Museum situated on 75,000 square meters of breathtaking land near Upper Lake Zurich in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland, opened officially its gates.The Tree Museum exhibits individual trees from the collection of Enzo Enea, the Swiss landscape architect and one of the world’s most prominent tree collectors.

In a series of open spaces, we show our appreciation for trees by using them to create spaces in a unique way that integrates aesthetics, sustainability, history and lifetime. The collection is solely composed of varieties which belong to our climate zone. With the Tree Museum, Enzo Enea has accomplished his vision of combining landscape, botany, art, architecture, and design.

The Museum features approximately 50 trees representing more than 25 varieties- several examples of which are more than 100 years old- creating an aura of immortality and an awareness of ‘time’. Another 100 trees and plants are located in the Park which surrounds the Tree Museum. In total, the Enea grounds contain more than 3000 exclusive wood species.

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
