Oklahoma State University Arboretum


Oklahoma State University was founded in 1890 as a land grant college. Historically, the University has focused heavily on providing practical yet impactful educations in teaching, agriculture, and science. Achieving the Arboretum Accreditation allows them to better continue these traditions and realize a grander mission for generations to come. The Arboretum strives to provide an inviting, appealing, and educational environment that best serves the campus population and its’ various functions related to higher education and community outreach.

As of Fall 2022, the Arboretum holds over 3,970 inventoried trees from 122 different species across over 870 acres. Some of the most notable collection specimens include two survivor trees from the Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Building bombing, a Maclua pomifera and a Juniperus virginia that predate both statehood and the University, and an array of both native and nonnative species. OSU Stillwater has also been awarded the Tree Campus Higher Education award through the Arbor Day Foundation every year since 2011.
