The property is organized by geographic areas of the world such as China, Japan and Russia. There are also areas devoted to genera and species such as fir and magnolia. Other areas represent specific soil requirements. A map of the arboretum is available here.

We encourage all types of exploration at the arboretum including photography, plein air artistry, meditation and overall enjoyment of nature. Please come and see what nature has to offer!

If you participate in outdoor activities or visit natural areas such as parks and arboretums, you may be in an area where ticks and poison ivy live. For more information about visiting the arboretum, see Tips on Your Visit.
