ARBORETUM

 

An arboretum is technically only a collection of trees. Related collections include a fruticetum (from the Latin frutex, meaning shrub), and a viticetum, a collection of vines. More commonly today, an arboretum is a botanical garden containing living collections of primarily woody plants intended at least partly for scientific study. An arboretum specialising in growing conifers is known as a pinetum.

The term 'arboretum' was first used in an English publication by John Claudius Loudon in 1833 in The Gardener's Magazine but the concept was already long-established by then. Some famous arboretum are Westobirt Arboretum, Abney Park Arboretum, Arnold Arboretum, Derby Arboretum, Bedgebury Arboretum, Holden Arboretum, U S National Arboretum, Morton Arboretum, and Hoyt Arboretum.
