The Frédéric Back Tree Pavilion, set in the northeast corner of the Jardin botanique de Montréal, opened its doors in July 1996.

The goal of the Tree Pavilion is to highlight the importance of trees and forests in our lives and showcase the Arboretum's collections.

The Frédéric Back Tree Pavilion is located on Rosemont Boulevard, between 28th and 29th Avenue, east of Pie-IX Boulevard.

Address for paratransit: 4500, boul. Rosemont. Please do not use as postal address.

The Rosemont Boulevard gate is open until 6 p.m.

Opening Hours of the Frédéric Back Tree Pavilion

Until August 1  From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.



The Frédéric Back Tree Pavilion introduces visitors to the scientific, ecological, economic, artistic and cultural dimensions of trees, in both cities and forests.

Through its outreach activities it makes people aware of the roles played by trees in different aspects of our lives, and in the ecological balance of many ecosystems.


During the summer, discover the best-kept secret of the Tree Pavilion: the extensive collection of miniaturized trees on display in the Courtyard of North American bonsai.

Also don't miss the various activities offered to the general public, as well as to students.

To round out your visit, take a tour of path around the tree pavilion pond and explore the impressive collections of trees in the Arboretum.
