The Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania is a historic public garden and educational institution. It promotes an understanding of the relationship between plants, people and place through programs that integrate science, art and the humanities.
The Arboretum conducts four major activities: education, research, outreach, and horticultural display. As the official Arboretum of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania provides research and outreach services to state agencies, community institutions and to citizens of Pennsylvania and beyond.
One of the most outstanding features of the estate that became the Morris Arboretum in 1933 is the collection of large and stately trees placed throughout the 92-acre property. These sovereigns form the fabric that weaves together the Arboretum. Beginning with founder John Morris’s interest in growing plants from around the world, unusual specimens have flourished on the site of the Morris Arboretum for well over 100 years.
