The quarterly magazine of the Arnold Arboretum, Arnoldia explores knowledge, experience, and imagination wherever they entangle with the nature of trees.

For more than 110 years, Arnoldia magazine has been exploring the nature of trees. First established in 1911 as the Bulletin of Popular Information, the Arnold Arboretum's quarterly magazine has long been the definitive forum for conversations about temperate woody plants and their landscapes. Contributors tell stories of plant exploration, offer behind-the-scenes glimpses of botanical research, and dig into archives to explore the history of gardens, landscapes, and science. Expanding in scope to encompass poetry, visual art, and literary essays, Arnoldia follows knowledge, experience, and imagination wherever they entangle with trees.
