Tour Our Arboretum


By definition, an arboretum is a botanical garden devoted to trees. We here at the Conservancy consider it more of a Tree Museum: where time, care, and attention allows our trees to stand with the prominence they deserve. Through our efforts, Madison Square Park was recently awarded a Level 1 Arboretum accreditation!
