Current Collection Statistics


The living collection is the term we use when referring collectively to all accessioned plants growing at the Arboretum.  Arboretum staff are continually assessing and evaluating the health of the plants, their relevance to our mission, and their aesthetic value.  As a result of this ongoing assessment we regularly remove plants from the living collection for a variety of reasons, but our plant exploration, seed collection, and plant acquisition activities provide a constant flow of new plants into the living collection that provide opportunities for evaluation, research, study and appreciation of the beauty and diversity of the plant world.

Below is an overview of the living collections, current as of January 1, 2020.
