Tree Learning Center
Sims Tree Learning Center was established in 1996
by Gary and Susan Sims, owners of Sims Tree Health
Specialists, Inc. Since it's opening, Sims TLC has
become a staple in the nature education world by
hosting events for various garden clubs, educational
classes, and workshops.
Features of the gardens include one of the largest
Palm gardens in the Inland Empire, the Joe Casey
Memorial Cactus and Succulent Garden, and a fruit
Orchard. With a 4,000 square foot museum that
includes antique cars, tools, insect collections, and
biological collections, you can visit Sims TLC as
many times as you want and still come out learning
Hooded Orioles, Tortoises, Tarantulas, and many other wildlife species make their home among the gardens.
In 2011, we began the TLC Wildlife Aware program, which teaches garden lovers and tree care industry workers about the laws and regulations surrounding the wildlife species living in the areas that are worked on everyday. To learn more about TLC Wildlife Aware, click here.
All tours are free and should be made by appointment. Gardens are open Monday through Friday between 9:00am and 4:00pm.
