University of Connecticut Arboretum


University of Connecticut Arboretum is a living laboratory supporting the academic mission and strategic vision of a top research institution.  It is an asset of great beauty and scientific interest to the University community, the citizens of Connecticut, and to all campus visitors.  Building upon the 'campus as arboretum' concept first developed by horticulture professor Alfred G. Gulley in 1894, the Arboretum has identified over 5,000 trees representing more than 425 different species and varieties, more than 90 unique genera, and dozens of trees of special interest. It is open to the public year-round and free of charge.
