The Arboretum Through Time

Historic Views of Our Landscape

This collection of pre-2000 images captures and records the evolution of the Arnold Arboretum’s landscape and its living collections. Rather than highlighting specimen trees, the images reflect the overall look of the Arboretum: its hilltops, valleys, distant vistas, and distinct plant groupings such as the oak, lilac, rhododendron, and conifer collections. Also included are studies of our buildings, stonewalls, ornamental iron gates, and roads and paths.
