Arboretum TourOne of the Town’s earliest official acts (in 1898) was to pass legislation to preserve our sylvan setting by protecting our trees and shrubs. In 1977, rather than being limited to replacing dying trees and shrubs with varieties permitted by the County, Garrett Park officially established itself as an Arboretum. Since then, the Arboretum Committee has planted more than 600  trees and shrubs, many of rare and unusual varieties, to maintain a canopy of shade trees and to provide color and botanical interest throughout the seasons.

The Garrett Park Arboretum Committee advises the Town Council on the management of all tree and perennial plantings in the Town rights – of – way and public spaces. Town Ordinances exist to protect trees and shrubs:

Sections 715, 716 and Section 717 of the Town Code

History of the Garrett Park Arboretum

Up to seven members serve for five years each and are appointed by the Mayor.
