Tree map

Download a map (PDF) of rare, native, landscape, or special interest plant species that grow at the arboretum! This species map was created using GIS mapping technology by volunteer Andrew King. Over the coming months we’ll be adding new pages with species-specific information that link from the table below. We will also be adding QR codes to the plant labels around the arboretum so that visitors can access these pages from their smartphones or iPads!
