Welcome to The University of Alabama Arboretum!

Alabama has a rich heritage of abundant biodiversity and natural resources. Conservation and education are key to passing that heritage to future generations of Alabamians. The 60-acre University of Alabama Arboretum has shared in this vision since its establishment over 50 years ago. The Arboretum provides unique opportunities for teaching, research, and outreach, all central goals of the University’s mission. A ten-minute drive east of campus, the Arboretum has grown to become a cherished part of the University and the Tuscaloosa communities.
