Welcome to the Arboretum

Welcome to the Armstrong State University Arboretum. The Arboretum encompasses Armstrong’s 268-acre campus and displays a wide variety of shrubs and other woody plants. Developed areas of campus contain native and introduced species of trees and shrubs. Most are labeled. Natural areas of campus contain plants typical in Georgia’s coastal broadleaf evergreen forests such as live oak, southern magnolia, red bay, horse sugar and sparkleberry. Several plant collections have been established in the Arboretum, including a Camellia Garden, Conifer Garden, Fern Garden, Ginger Garden, Primitive Garden and an International Garden. The Arboretum is open to the public seven days a week during the daylight hours.

The Armstrong Arboretum is attracting quite a bit of attention. Check out Savannah Morning News' article on savannahnow.com.
