A tree of each species is signed with the common name and Latin name plus a mapped location. Our inventory also has a GPS location for a fun way to find your favorite tree.
Hands on Fun
Become a community volunteer. Your employee or church group is welcomed to get down and dirty while at the same time helping the arboretum with much appreciated maintenance.
LEARN AND QUESTION
The Yellowstone Arboretum is the perfect place to learn botany up close and personal. Whether it's a self-guided walk or one of our fun "Out on a Limb" tours you can be assured of leaving the arboretum with a wealth of "tree knowledge". All four seasons offer their own surprises. As the weather changes so do the trees. Our inventory pages will give you an advanced look at what to expect so be sure to take a look and plan to search for your favorite tree!
