Four miles of road, eight miles of trails, 1800 hundred acres—what more could be asked of an Arboretum? Committed to the mission of the preservation and appreciation of trees, as with many fine arboretums, you can acquire an overview of the collections with a short drive or a casual walk among the trees and plants, where a closer view of the many shrubs, trees, and flowers can be anticipated. This is an arboretum that invites a return, where the trees can be studied or simply appreciated for their beauty. The opportunity for new encounters seems unlimited at Dawes.
