Hoyt Arboretum is a living laboratory where scientists and students can study trees and plants that would not otherwise grow in our climate and habitat. Features at the arboretum include:
At Hoyt Arboretum every tree has a story to tell. Tree collections are organized by taxonomy (plant families) and geography. Identification labels help you to learn about trees that catch your interest.
The Hoyt Collection includes more than 1,000 true species, with specimens grown from seeds collected in the wild. These plants produce seeds that can be used to replant native ecosystems that have been destroyed or are at risk.
An arboretum is a promise to future generations. Just as we are enjoying mature, wonderful trees that were planted many years ago, the trees we plant today will grow to provide shade, beauty and value for decades and centuries to come.
Hoyt Arboretum is Portland's global garden in the wild, where we grow and exhibit trees and plants from around the world while educating our community and conserving vitally important plant bio-diversity.
