Arthur and Janet Ross Conifer Arboretum

Year Round

Set on rolling lawns and amid dramatic exposed rock, the historic Arthur and Janet Ross Conifer Arboretum features towering pines, elegant spruces, and mountain firs.

These irreplaceable trees that surround the Conservatory were among the first planted at the Garden, back in the early 1900s. Truly spectacular after a snowfall, and when the interspersed cherry trees add bursts of pink in the spring, it is a place where you can begin to learn about the diversity of the world's trees. This majestic collection evokes the alpine forests of the American west, the windswept shores of Japan, and the boreal forests of Alaska.
